TQ7630 : Hawkhurst: Dunk's Almshouses and School

taken 2 months ago, near to Hawkhurst, Kent, Great Britain

Hawkhurst: Dunk's Almshouses and School
Hawkhurst: Dunk's Almshouses and School
The school occupied the square central block, with ranges of almshouses on either side. A tablet on the school block reads:

GIVEN BY Sr THOMAS DUNK Kt 1723

What is clear is that most of the 1723 details (including windows) have been lost - almshouses, after all, have to be kept in habitable condition.

The Dunk's site is on the north side of the Rye road, opposite the unsightly disused church LinkExternal link and (these days) Waitrose.
