To Relieve Need and Distress - A presentation by Sarah Doig
The fascinating story of East Anglian Almshouses, which have a long and rich history stretching back to our medieval monasteries, will be brought to life by Sarah.
She will chart the evolution of the almshouse and explore the life of these institutions from the perspective of both donor and beneficiary. She will also take a look at the differing styles of architecture as well as dipping into the various rules and regulations inhabitants had to adhere to in order to keep their highly-prized place in the almshouse!
With Sarah's expert knowledge and considerable wit, this promises to be a most entertaining talk.
