Almshouse.

Almshouse.
In the early sixteenth century an alderman of the city, Henry Llewellyn, left a legacy to build a further series of almshouses, on a separate site in Priest Row, to the north of St Cuthbert's Church.

More accommodation was provided through legacies from Bishop Still and Bishop Willes and in 1637 the Bubwith site was expanded again through a legacy from Walter Brick, a burgess of the city. These almshouse here were built by Walter Brick. We were lucky enough to be shown the lovely communal gardens at the back of these two houses by a lovely gentleman who lived in the house on the right.

Nice record shot Amelia. I have a feeling that I have also taken this view a long time ago now.
