Alms House at Salisbury Cathedral
I wonder how long ago these Alms Houses were built? Their architecture was most interesting especially the doors and windows. I was introduced to Jeremy Ames, The Master of Alms, who is an artist and collector of pottery etc. He had some wonderful pieces by Bernard Leach, Cardew, from Harry and May Davis and others. He and Mike Braisher have had a couple of joint exhibitions and it was Mike and Annie who took me to visit. Annie is the person in the entry to the Alms House.
