The almshouses in South Street, Bourne, Lincolnshire
The almshouses in South Street, Bourne, Lincolnshire
A stone tablet on the front of the Tudor Cottages in South Street, Bourne, suggests that these almshouses were built in 1636 but this is misleading because they most likely date from the late 18th or early 19th century, erected on the site of the original Trollope Bedehouses although the original foundations and much of the materials from the previous properties were probably used in the reconstruction. The benefactor for the original charitable undertaking was landowner William Trollope (1562-1637) who provided a yearly sum of 33 for the maintenance of "six poor aged men" from the parish who were accommodated in the almshouses that still fulfil a useful role today.
