Nine Houses Almshouses, Chester: 2 reviews and 4 photos
Although called The Nine Houses there are actualy only six of these nice looking almshouses. They date from around 1650 and are unique due to their timber framed structure on a sandstone base. These houses were saved from dereliction by the city council in 1969.
The little plaque SMP and SOP on the houses indicates the parish boundary between St Michael's and St Olave's Churches.
The best view of the houses is probably from the city walls.
