Metcalfe Almshouses

I made the mistake of trying to get to Ickworth House using TomTom on Saturday.  The man at the Shell garage was much more helpful.  But there was a bonus: an unwonted tour of Suffolk took me to Hawstead and rounding a corner I was presented with the delightful surprise of the Metcalfe Almshouses siting comfortably across a green.  Pevsner does not share my delight: ‘A hungry-looking job of grey bricks…The two middle doorways are taken together under one ogee arch – the one plum in the cake.’
