Victoria Almshouses
Victoria Almshouses
In Deerings Road. Built by public subscription as one of four projects approved by the Borough Council to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897. Work started in 1899, although the formal foundation stone was not laid until 18 April 1900. The first occupants moved in in late 1900. Further buildings on the site were added in 1911, various years in the 1920s and in 1939, with a major development being the addition of some flats in 1983.
