Foord Almshouses, Rochester
Foord Almshouses, Rochester
Founded by Thomas Hellyar Foord, Mayor of Rochester in the 1880s. Norman Clout in his history of Borstal village says, "Their outward design, on three sides of a grass quadrangle, is matched in taste by their interiors, and the group is crowned by a green domed clock tower above the very attractive Hall. Although it has not yet become a recognised 'tourist attraction', this hall is worth a visit for its handsome wall paintings, which depict scenes in the history of Rochester, with some of its historic visitors. Notable among those are King Charles II and Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell. The latter was MP for Rochester and the foremost English admiral of his time."
