St. Johns' Almshouses, Sherborne by 


The original Almshouse of St. John The Baptist and St. John The Evangelist is the best surviving example of a medieval Almshouse in Wessex. (Sherborne, Dorset, UK) It was built circa 1437 to provide housing and care for 12 men and 4 women who were too poor or feeble to care for themselves. The building comprised a Chapel, a hall and dormitories above. Niches held statues of the two Saint Johns. The iron railings are Victorian.
The Almshouses have now become a residential home for elderly people.

I live in the UK and in 2011 when I joined Red Bubble,started experimenting with different settings and angles. I enjoy finding suitable pictures of flowers, Scotland, reflections, lamps and seats and have now branched out into different subjects.
In 2013 I finally realised my dream of visiting Australia and New Zealand. Whilst there I purchased a Pentax camera so have been able to expand my portfolio of flower macros among other new and exciting subjects.
