Site: Elias Davy - Church Street (1 memorial)

CR0, Church Street, Elis David Almshouse

These alms houses were built 1875 (north range) and 1887 (south range), and the site has the remains of a Second World War air raid shelter. The site is now known asRamsey Court and we found a number of community organisations at this address, so perhaps it no longer provides homes.
