enchantedengland: SQUEEE I know this place! This is the Lorde LeycesterHospital in Warwick, Warwickshire; which is not a medical establishment but a retirement home for ex-servicemen and their wives. The word hospital is used in its ancient sense, meaning ‘a charitable institution for the housing and maintenance of the needy, infirm, or aged’
The Hospital is a group of historical timber-framed buildings, constructed in the late 14th centuryand clustered tidily round a Norman gateway. The 12th century Chantry Chapel is above it; and hidden behind these venerable edifices is the tiny, delightful Master’s Garden. The Hospital is open to the public and welcomes visitors throughout the year; with rooms available for civil ceremonies and weddings and private functions and such.
