Update on Elizabeth Heath – Almshouses Article
Some time ago, I put on ‘ourmansfieldandarea’ some information about Elizabeth Heath, a local lady who had built in 1691, a row of Almshouses for the poor in Mansfield. Unfortunately, in recent years, they had finished up empty and neglected, although still of sound structure.
However, the Trustees, have recently managed to upgrade them to modern standards, so that six occupants now occupy the previous twelve cottages, so giving them more space, as well as a complete update to modern standards. There is also the good news that possibly by next year, the six additional cottages, in Portland Street, will be get a similar update, and will be fit for new occupation.
