The Hospital building is first mentioned in the Valor Ecclesiasticus (1535), where it
is said to consist of a house with a close attached. The Charity Commissioners Report
of 1820 found a small one-storeyed house on Bondgate, with accommodation for
2 sisters. In 1878 this was replaced by the present building.
