1880 – Almshouses, Springfield, Essex

Architect: Joseph Clarke


“These alms-houses have been erected by two ladies as a memorial, from the designs of Mr. Joseph Clarke, F.S.A. They are built of red brick, flint walls, and timbered gables, with an open porch provided with seats in front, leading to each almshouse— the roofs are tiled and the rooms are fitted with the usual conveniences to make the last days of the old people happy and comfortable. ” Published in The Building News, November 12 1880.
