Thaxted Almshouses
Single storey almshouses by St.John the Baptist's church with John Webb's windmill in the distance

The thatched building is known as The Chantry and was a priest's house until 1589 when it was converted to four almshouses.

The tiled row was originally built in the early 18th century as 8 dwellings, though converted in 1975 into three.
