Spalden's Almshouses, Ashbourne, Derbys.
The grassed area at the front of a u-shaped row of almshouses viewed from the entrance gates off Church Lane. These were once almshouses for clergy widows. They were built in 1753, courtesy of a legacy outlined in the Will of Nicholas Spalden. Spalden, who lived in the early C18th, also left money in his Will with which to establish two elementary schools in the town, one for thirty boys and the other for a similar number of girls.
