Knaresborough Almshouse

Knaresborough Almshouse

The mouldings and roof structure of these buildings indicates a probably date before 1500, and perhaps around 1450. Originally one large and impressive building it was listed in the Survey of 1611 as a hospital for six poor folk.

The almshouse was at one time an impressive and large building and also a hospital for the poor. It is of great age, probably close to 600 years old. Internal modernisation took place in 2011.
