What’s the story behind the Martha Walker Almshouses in Armley? MARK STEVENSON reveals all in his latest Mark’s History column.
Martha Walker Almshouses, or Nancroft House, were built in 1893 in memory of Martha’s parents and brothers and sister.
In 1893 to live in the Almshouses you needed to be a member of the Church of England and to have lived in Armley for not less than five years. Today you just need to be over 55.
