SPROWSTON ROAD (East side) No. 219 (Lazar House)



Former Leper Hospital (Magdalen Chapel) C12. Later an almshouse until C17. Restored 1906 by Sir Eustace Gurney and subsequently a Branch Library. Now a day centre for people with learning disabilities. Flint rubble with stone and some brick dressings; pantiled roof. Now L-plan. 2 storeys (mostly open to roof); 6-window range at right-angles to street. Norman doorway in gable end has attached shafts with cushion capitals and roll- moulded voussoirs. Round-headed window (renewed) above with 2 small blind slits and 2 oculi with brick dressings at the head of the gable. Right-side elevation has a damaged Norman door and another blocked door with 4-centred brick arch. Red brick reconstruction with 2 and 3-light mullioned and transomed windows, together with a single-storey wing at right angles and its projecting porch presumably date from the early C20 restoration. Interior: medieval window splays and dressings include 2 round headed arches with earstone dressings in the west gable. Most roof-timbers replaced. Founded before 1119 by Herbert de Losigna, the nave was used as the hospital and the chancel served as a chapel for the inmates.
