Holy Jesus Hospital

Moving round to the other side of the roundabout we can see the Holy Jesus Hospital.It was built in 1681 but wasn't for sick people.It was a place for "reception and entertainment of pilgrims ,travellers or strangers". Swan House r'bout was built in the early 60's and thankfully this building survived it,although some other INCREDIBLE BUILDINGS didn't.(this picture borrowed from http://www.timmonet.co.uk/html/home.htm with thanks)

In those days medicine was not friendly but buildings were. If all buildings in this plave had survived until today that place could be stunning
