Notes about this historic site

1 An inscription above the centre door of this group of six almshouses reads…”the six almshouses erected in Bridget Street in 1860 by Catharine Butlin were replaced in 1905 by the present buildings through the generosity of Bohun Henry Chandler Fox, a great-nephew of the original foundress.”
2 These one storey redbrick cottages appear to be in normal use. The original buildings in Bridget Street have been knocked down.
