The original charity in connection with these almshouses dates from 1473, but
the present row of 3 small almshouses are probably C16 although recently very
much restored. Tile almshouses consist of 3 cottages of 1 storey with ridge
tile roof, eaves and gutter. Red brick elevation with plinth. 2 small end stacks.
3 lattice casements in oak frames with mullions and transoms and triangular
eadpieces. 3 vertically panelled oak doors in wide frames with carved Tudor
eadpieces. Small wooden plaque in centre with ate and inscription referring
to recent restoration.
