Moretonhampstead Alms Houses
Another town we visited on our day out in Devon - surrounded by spectacular countryside is Moretonhampstead. It is another ancient market town.

Lots of interesting & quirky things to see; one of which is the famous granite Alms Houses built I think, in 1637. Early in the 19th century the facade was damaged and by 1938 they had fallen into disrepair. In 1952 they were purchased by the National Trust.
