Ford's Hospital, Greyfriars Lane
Almshouses endowed in 1509 by William Ford and 1517 by William Pisford. Largely destroyed by a single bomb during WW2 which killed the warden, a nurse and six inmates. Rebuilt in the early 1950s using as much of the original timbers as could be salvaged.

The balloons are to signify that it is one of the buildings involved in the Heritage Open Days weekend.
