I have these pictures for a while now, but with work and other commitments I kept postponing showing them. Stratford upon Avon is well known because is the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Hubby and I didn’t study Shakespeare at school, but I read a couple of his plays as a teenager. I also read Lord Byron, Keats and my mother is found of Rudyard Kipling.
Earlier this month we’ve been to Birmingham and after a day working, I wanted to visit Starford upon Avon.
These Almshouses were built in early 15th century by the nearby church as homes for aged local people. From the 15th century to present day, the houses were used only for this purpose. I think it’s amazing they have the same purpose after more than 500 years.
