LENCHS TRUST ALMSHOUSES

DESCRIPTION + /

A close of red brick almshouses erected along three sides of a rectangular green, with a warden's house in the centre of the end which is open to the street. Built in 1879 by J A Chatwin in a transitional design of Birmingham Gothic with the more up to date late 17th century revival style seen in the local idiom of moulded and cut brickwork. The end houses and the warden's house are the more lavishly decorated with the revival details. They have steep hipped, tiled roofs with gable ends and rall ribbed chimneys. The north end of the site is enclosed by a high screen wall with pointed moulded brick arcading to the upper half.
