Trinity Almshouses

More scenes from my walk back from the local Baker.

I have always liked the fact that the mariners – decay’d Masters & Commanders of Ships’ – who were housed so comfortably in almshouses paid for by a legacy of Captain Henry Mudd, should have been consoled by stone models of ships on entry:-

And I like also the detailing of the stone carving on the side buildings facing out onto the street:-

    Dear Charles I thoroughly enjoy reading your daily blog, especially during these days of lockdown! Read up on these almshouses today and Captain Tom Mudd (what a charming name reminds me of Captain Tom!) – and their fight against planning applications, which I am currently in the process of writing to stop my neighbour’s proposed extension which would block all natural light from my kitchen – my bakery!! Happy New Year to you both and a healthy one too. Janice
