    Default CPO on Old Leper Hospital. Warwick

    About time really.
    It is a very important building Historically, the practice was to bring sick people into actual side isles of the church, or, build separate chapels. See the one at Dunwich in Suffolk. So this separate house is rare.

    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    A good thing. I've been seeing the buildings slowly deteriorate for years.

    It is a shame to see this building going to ruin which had an important part of Warwick's heritage. It should have been purchased long ago by the Council while they could have rescued it and turned it into a museum.
