About The Hospital of St Cross & Almshouse of Noble Poverty
We are a UK registered charity founded around 1132. Our fine medieval buildings have provided food and shelter for hundreds of years. The principal activity of the Hospital continues to be the provision of individual, private apartments for a living community of about twenty-five elderly men. We are also responsible for caring for and maintaining the Grade 1 listed buildings. At the heart of the Hospital’s inner quadrangle is a wonderful Norman church. Nearby stand a classic medieval hall and kitchen, a Tudor cloister.
