Trinity Hospital, Hospital Lane, Clun - Shropshire (UA)

Known as The Hospital of the Holy and Undivided Trinity, these almshouses were founded in 1607 by Henry Howard, Earl of Northampton, and built in 1618. A Warden's house and chapel were added in the second half of the C19. Parts of the perimeter wall, which incorporates a mortuary, are in very poor condition and some sections have collapsed. Large parts of the wall are colonised by vegetation and saplings which threatens further instability and loss of integrity. An Historic England Repair Grant was accepted in 2018 and repairs to the wall are currently in progress.
