The Lord Leycester Hospital, Warwick
The Hospital itself was founded by Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, in 1571, and was intended as a hospital for aged and infirm soldiers.
In 1694, the Great Fire of Warwick started at the Friends Meeting House in Warwick and spread up the High Street consuming the original medieval timber-framed houses. Only the Lord Leycester Hospital and its near neighbours survive.
