MAGDALENE STREET 1. 1133 (West Side) Almshouses and Chapel of St Mary Magdalene's Hospital (formerly listed as St Mary's Almshouses) ST 4938 7/81 21.6.50. II* 2. Founded before 1322 to house 10 poor men. The present buildings seem mostly late medieval. The chapel, east wall and gable of hall with bell-cote, the west wall and lower part of west gable survive. Originally the chapel opened out of the east end of a great hall. The roof of this hall is thought to have been removed after the Dissolution, and 2 rows of little houses were built facing a narrow central passage. Only the north range survives with entrance from street through an arch in east end. 5 houses in range. 2 storeys. Random rubble. Slate roof. Chimney-stack at west end. 5 windows. Paired wood casements to left and paired mullioned windows to right. 5 doorways (2 blocked) with arched heads. Plain wooden doors. The chapel is basically Perp with a single lancet (blocked) in east wall. Slate roof, lowered in pitch. Tiny 3-light windows under rectangular hoodmoulds. Small piscina and boarded roof with paterae inside. Pointed west arch with double wooden doors.
