The Almshouses, Nos
Almshouse row. Dated 1806 by John Carter. Coursed galletted rubble stone with
ashlar dressings on ashlar plinth. Moulded cornice to slate hipped roof with
2 ridge stacks. Central pair of houses project slightly with dressed quoins.
1 storey; 4 pairs of lancet casements, divided by 3 lean-to projections, doubled in
centre, with 4 boarded doors facing each other in their sides. These entrance
projections seem to have been thrown forward at a later date, re-using drip-moulds
from window that they covered. Crest on central projection with inscription:
See The Gentleman's Magazine, 1817. (ii), 365; M. Colvin, A Biographical Dictionary
of British Architects, 1600 to 1840, 1978, 200.
