  • Tradition has it that the building was founded as a hospital around 1085 by Saint Wulfstan, then Bishop of Worcester.
  • The hospital was among the last monastic institutions to be dissolved by Henry VIII in 1540.
  • The building survived the Battle of Worcester in 1651, when the area was in the thick of the fighting.
  • It has since had many uses including a private home, a college for the blind and a printing works.
