WYNARDS ALMSHOUSES

View this record on the Archaeology Data Service web site


Description:The medieval almshouses (for which see Monument No. 11092) are said to have been rebuilt in the 17th and 18th centuries (DoE 1974, 170; Cherry and Pevsner 1989, 428-9), although the extent of surviving medieval fabric ensures that any rebuilding must have been carried out within the established plan. The chapel, at least, appears to have been derelict after the Civil War, and thus a late 17th century rebuilding is indicated (see, again, Monument No. 11092 for further details). Richard Parker reports sighting a probably 17th century roof in at least one section of the east range.
