Beauchamp Almshouses
House, boardroom, library and chapel. 1863 and later, by P C Hardwick.
Brick with limestone dressings and tile roof. The warden's lodge is of
two storeys. At the left it has a canted bay window, with a 3-light window
on the first floor under a gable. To the right is a cross-wing with a square
bay window on the ground floor and applied timbering to the gable. In the
middle is a gabled timber window on the first floor and a doorway with shouldered
head and three lights over. Chimney, to left, and to left of cross-wing, with
rubbed brick shafts of various descriptions. Adjoining to the left is the
gable of the boardroom, which has a window of three trefoiled ogee lights
with flat head and reticulated tracery. At the left is a single-storey link
to the Church of St Leonard (qv). It has three windows of two lights and two
of three lights, with moulded timber mullion. The door, to the right of the
first window, has a pointed head, carved spandrels, and flanking lights with
tracery. Projecting from the east wall of this range are the library and chapel.
The latter is timber-framed and is constructed from part of the old Church of
St Leonard which was demolished in 1864. It has timber windows of three tre-
foiled lights in its east and north walls. The east gable has a truss with
curved braces to a cambered tie-beam, and a king-strut between tie-beam and
collar. Interior: chapel has two roof trusses with tie-beam and raking struts.
Boardroom has false hammerbeam roof on corbels, with arch-braces to embattled
collars. The fireplace is carved with foliage and has an overmantel with a
moulded border to a painting. (BoE, p 223).
