the "nave" which housed the Hospital itself was pulled down in 1869. Roofless.

History. The date of foundation is unknown, but the street (whose name is a
corruption of St Anne's Gate) was referred to as "Annesgate" in 1228. The earliest
reference to the Hospital itself is in 1438, but from the architectural evidence it is
clearly older. Traditionally founded by one of the Nevilles. Supported by alms
alone, at least until the earliest recorded endowment in 1680. Its early
administration is unknown, but from time immemorial it was administered by the Mayor
and Corporation, and used to house and support 8 poor widows.
