6/65 Hulne Friary:

Infirmary of Carmelite friary, now private house. Mid C13, altered in late
C18. Rubble with cut quoins and dressings; flat leaded roof to infirmary
hall, stone slates to chapel. Detached block within curtain wall, to south
of claustral buildings: Infirmary hall and narrower chancel-like chapel on
east. Blocked west window of 3 lancet lights under a pointed arch under
coped gable with C18 finial; C18 Gothick 4-centred doorways on north and
south, the latter with quatrefoil over, flanked by contemporary 2-light
windows with small-paned sashes. East gable stack with crenellated cap.
Chapel has similar 2-light windows in side walls and roof pent against end
of hall, although east gable stands; original east window of 2 lights with
quatrefoil in spandrel.

Unique survival of a Carmelite infirmary, following typical medieval hospital
plan (cf. St. Anne's Hospital in Ripon, and probably also St. Leonard's
Hospital near Alnwick).

C20 timber addition on south, linking infirmary with cottage against south
curtain, is not of special interest.
