Sir William Turner's Hospital, Kirkleatham

This view of the almshouses at Kirleatham taken from a glass plate negative is relatively unchanged today. The stone pillars in the foreground serve as the entrance to the complex from Kirkleatham Lane (former A174 before the road alterations), the cobbled roadway replaced by more modern tarmac. It is still a magnificent façade to view, at odds in some ways to the present day world which passes by the gates.
