An inscribed bench in memory of former Browne’s Hospital trustee and benefactor John Plumb has been dedicated by the Confrater Fr Michael Ruff.

A short ceremony took place attended by trustees of The Hospital of Browne, residents and executors, to remember John Plumb, a well respected historian who was passionate about the restoration of buildings in Stamford.

He became a governor of the almshouses in 2003 and with failing health, said that trusteeship of Brownes was the last post he would give up. He died in 2014 and left a legacy of £1.3m to the almshouses. The trustees hope to use the money for the conservation and repair of the complex.
