Full Description

About seven years ago, a spacious stone building was removed from the upper end of, what is called, The Hill Close, (at that corner which abuts upon Burgage Hill) which had much the appearance of a chapel. An aperture which seemed to have been a gothic window remained in the west end… an opinion prevails, among the older inhabitants of the town, that an hospital once stood here. If so, this stone building was probably part of that, and might indeed be a little chapel or oratory belonging to it. (1)
