Stoneleigh Old Almshouses
Stoneleigh Old Almshouses
This venerable row of almshouses is dated 1594 and was provided by Sir Thomas and Lady Alice Leigh for housing the poor. Each resident received one shilling a week but had to attend church on Saturdays, Sundays and holy days as well as a quarterly sermon preached by the local vicar. Originally each house had one room upstairs and one downstairs room with a shared garden at the rear; in more recent times extensions have been added and modern facilities incorporated but the basic units remain the same. They are grade II listed.
