and Boundary Wall (formerly
listed as Almshouses)

Cl9: the resultant 24 cottages were modified to form 16 dwellings in c1965.
Brick with Swithland slate roofs. Forms three sides of a courtyard, facing
inwards. The chapel is central to the northern range, with an early Cl9
frontispiece: stone round headed archway with carved spandrels is flanked by
a cupola containing clock.
