One of our latest projects is about Ravenstone Hospital historic almshouses.
The main outcome of the project will be a film which is partly about the history of the almshouses but focuses mainly on a former resident, Ann Ayre Hely (nee Bradshaw), who was born in the village and spent the last years of her life in the almshouses. She led a remarkable life in between, however, and became a nurse in the Crimean war. Although they did not work together, she was known to Florence Nightingale.
