Ford’s Hospital

Ford’s Hospital in Coventry is not a hospital in the modern sense, but was named as such for one of the word’s earlier meanings: a building providing subsidized housing for elderly or infirm people, otherwise known as an alms house.

Tucked away on a quiet side street, it is one of the city’s less obvious historic treasures, a fantastically restored half-timbered building from the early 16th century.
