Project type: Historic Building Recording
Significance of the results:

Summary. A programme of historic building recording was carried out by Colchester Archaeological Trust on a complex of 20th-century almshouses at 1-7 Winnocks, Military Road, Colchester in advance of their demolition. The brick buildings were constructed in 1934 as additional accommodation for the residents of the adjacent almshouse built by John Winnock in 1678. The construction was funded by George Rose, a local printer. Although the almshouses retain much of their original plan form, extensions added to each in 1962 and subsequent renovations have removed most of the original internal features.
