      Almshouses. What image does that conjure up? Picturesque thatched cottages? Victorian terraces? In fact, Kidderminster ’s alms houses are rather ordinary 1960s buildings, but they continue a tradition that stretches back over centuries.

      The earliest almshouses were established by Sir Edward Blount’s will of 1630. His executors got off to a good start, building six houses near St Mary’s church at a cost of £100. The bequest, however, was £500, with the remaining money intended for land purchase to provide a maintenance income, but neither Sir Edward’s executors nor their heirs bought any land. They just enjoyed the use of the money for forty years, until the long arm of the Charity Commission caught up with them.

      Sir Ralph Clare willed another six alms houses to the town in 1670. These were in Vicar St and sound quite up-market – ‘tenements with garden ground behind the same, extending down to the River Stour.’ Whitnell’s Alms was the third charity involved with alms houses. This poor-relief fund dates back to at least 1545, with a series of benefactors gifting money and rental income for the churchwardens to distribute to the poor. In 1684, Henry Higgins left four properties in Black Starr St (now Blackwell St ) for the trustees to house ‘poor honest people, such whom they should think well of.

      Alms houses are not exempt from the attentions of property developers and town planners. Sir Edward’s houses were subject to a compulsory purchase order when the canal was cut in 1770. They were valued at £315 and replaced by new houses in Rackfields, on land donated by Thomas Foley. These had a longer life; eventually being demolished in 1954, when adjacent slum clearance undermined their foundations. The houses in Vicar St were taken over by a wine merchant in 1829, and in exchange, he gave four houses in Church St and New St to the Clare charity. Henry Higgins’ alms houses were sold in 1868 for £146.19s.7d, and the remaining houses fell victim to the town planners when the ring road was built.
    • Kinlet is a large parish that encompasses most of the Shropshire portion of the Wyre Forest. To the east and south it is on the county boundary, formed by the River Severn and the Dowles Brook. Whilst today it is a single unit, for much of its history it was divided into Kinlet in the north and west and Earnwood in the south and east.
