Dr. White’s featured in the Evening Post / This Is Bristol

  • Friday’s edition of the Evening Post carried an article about Dr. White’s Almshouse and the upcoming 400th anniversary celebratory events.

Hidden away close to St Mary Redcliffe School is a set of 1960s buildings. If you were casually passing by you could easily miss them. They look so unremarkable, but the story of Dr White’s Charity is a very remarkable slice of Bristol’s heritage.

You can read their article online here.


  • Dr. White’s also featured in a centre-page spread in the Post on Tuesday 23rd July (click to zoom in)
