We'd been for a wander up and down the high street of Wotton-under-Edge, and were about to get back in the car and head home, when Andy spotted the sign above the little door over the street. "Visitors are welcome to walk around the courtyard and see the chapel." Well, we didn't need to be told twice.
I've always liked almshouses, from the charitable concept (providing housing for the poor) to the style of implementation which usually involves cute, tiny terraces arranged around a courtyard. These ones were built in the 17th century, and the beautiful little chapel in the middle of the courtyard still has a communion service every Monday.
