Leominister Almshouses and the Cross at Worcester

Leominister Almshouses and the Cross at Worcester

Coming up the hill out of Leominster one passes the 18th-century almshouses in Broadgates (bottom) on the right. The town shares with Coventry the doubtful honour of a connection with Leofric, that Earl of Mercia and husband of Lady Godiva who would not believe his wife; far at Leominster he founded a monastery, probably with the proceeds of his Coventry extortions. Worcester is famed as the last rallying point of the Royalists in the Civil War. The Cross (top) is the short street linking up Foregate and High Street.
