Knaresborough Almshouse

Six poor folk history plaque

Yup, that’s where the name came from. Nuff said.

 

“The mouldings and roof structure of these buildings indicate a probable 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.” – Knaresborough civic society 2009
