God's Place, Ewelme :: Shared Description

Built 1437-50 by Alice de la Pole, Duchess of Suffolk, as part of a complete ensemble of church, almshouses and school. The 11 almshouses are set round a courtyard encircled by a timbered cloister. From the courtyard a covered staircase and lobby lead directly into the church, where the residents were expected to perform daily prayers on her behalf in the chantry chapel of St John the Baptist. The almshouses are built of rubble limestone with tall brick chimney stacks. Each residence consists of a ground floor room with attic room above. There was also a warden's residence included, originally a priest separate from the church incumbent. Listed grade I.
