"The long range of roof, covering the refectory, the Master's residence, and the brothers' rooms, is carried from Beaufort's tower round the north and west sides of the inner court at the same level: but the monotony of this arrangement is pleasantly varied by the chimneys. The design of this portion of the building is exceedingly simple, and consists of square-headed windows without tracery, low arched doorways, and a range of chimney-projections with high octagonal shafts. Each dwelling comprises a sitting room, bed room, scullery, and closet, and is very compactly planned."

Text from 'Memorials of the Hospital of St. Cross and Alms House of Noble Poverty'.
