SK5739 : Plumptre Hospital

taken 10 years ago, near to Nottingham, Great Britain

Plumptre Hospital
Plumptre Hospital
This was a foundation for a 'Master and 13 poor widows' dating back to 1392, the present building dating from 1823. The patronage had remained with the Plumptre family for the whole of this time, as related on the stone above the doorway.
The charity remained in the premises until 1991, after which it stood vacant for 10 years. Since then it has been the RNIB Employment and Education Centre, so it is still providing assistance to disadvantaged people.
