Almshouses. 1860 for Frances Sandars. Red brick in Flemish bond with limestone ashlar, blue and yellow brick dressings. Welsh slate roof.

Rectangular on plan, each house with a two-room front, kitchen wing and yard to rear. Single storey, 17-bay symmetrical south front with gabled central and end bays breaking forward. Chamfered plinth. Steps to ashlar entrances with board doors on wrought-iron strap hinges beneath chamfered four-centred arches with carved foliate spandrels in square-headed chamfered reveals. Two and three-light ashlar mullioned windows, each light with three panes, in chamfered reveals. Similar three-light windows to end bays; pair of single-light windows to central bay. All openings with quoined surrounds. Gabled bays have flush yellow brick bands at eaves level. Central gable has lozenge panel bearing arms in relief, and large stone tablet above with carved spandrels and a segmental-headed panel inscribed:

Frances Sandars
dedicated these houses to
Almighty God for ever
AD 1860
For the benefit of Aged females

End gables each have a pair of octagonal ashlar panels beneath blue brick crosses. Coped gables with shaped kneelers throughout, the central gable with a good carved figure finial of a seated old woman in bonnet and apron, reading; pointed carved finials to end bays. Steeply pitched roof with banded plain and octagonal fish-scale slates. Corniced end stacks and ridge stacks with pointed recessed yellow brick panels to front. Stacks have alternating louvred cylindrical and crenellated octagonal pots. Still in use as almshouses. Built on a raised platform overlooking open fields, with a ha-ha around south and east sides faced with squared rock-faced limestone.

Frances Sandars, a local benefactor, also provided the Market Place Lamp (qv), the churchyard archway (qv) and many gifts to the church.
