Hancock's Hospital, The Green, Bardney
Grade II Listed almshouses of 1712 funded by Peter Hancock who died in 1708; his will provided that '... And there shall be paid to each of the said poor people weekly for ever, one shilling, and every one of them shall have a gowne, or a coat of grey cloth, upon the anniversary of my death day, next after the placing them in the said almshouses and afterwards, every two years for ever.....' In his 1816 book on Lincolnshire W Marrat refers to him as Peter Handcock. Ashlar plaque above central window inscribed "Impensis Petri Hancock Armiger A.D. MDCCXII". These almshouses originally housed seven men and seven women. They are still in use for their original purpose, despite a lapse around 1837, although they have now been converted to flats. Hancock's Charity has lapsed but a land endowment of four acres continues to provide income for them.
