Almshouse. 1841 from funds donated by a Mrs Lightfoot and her daughter, Mary, for
'persons in reduced circumstances professing godliness'. White brick in Flemish bond with
cement dressings, slate roof. Two storeys, rectangular in plan, originally with four rooms.
Tudor revival style. All windows casements with small panes. Street elevation a single bay
with 3-light first-floor window and blind rectangular panel to ground floor, apparently
intended for a memorial inscription that was either never supplied or which has been
effaced, window and panel alike in flat-arched openings with simply chamfered jambs and
lintels. West return has single-storey entrance porch with door of original design under
four-centred Tudor arch and windows to ground floor only; the east return with chimney
