Masters House, Warwick - Warwick

The Leper Hospital of St Michael was founded in the C12: the Master's House survives and is a timber framed building of C15 date built upon C12 foundations. The timber frame and roof are in very poor condition: there are structural problems throughout the building which has been propped to prevent collapse and it is covered by tarpaulins. Following the completion and endorsement of a viability appraisal study, the current proposal is to develop the Master's House, St Michael's Chapel and the surrounding site for unsupported social housing.
