The Hospital of St Cross, Winchester
This is the doorway to the 14th Century Brethren's Hall at The Hospital of St Cross
and Almshouse of Noble Poverty is at Winchester,
which "... stands on the north side of the quadrangle, and is a portion only of the old "Hundred Mennes Hall"; but enough is left to enable one to form a good idea of the original apartment, which measured 36 feet by 24 feet, until a portion was cut off to provide rooms for the Master, who is now lodged in a modern dwelling outside the gates.

It receives no support from central government, and depends entirely on day to day donations. If you would like to offer financial support please look here http://www.stcross.f2s.com/howhelp.htm
