Abstract:
A programme of archaeological building recording was undertaken at St Augustine''s Care Home, Cobridge Road, Stoke-on-Trent (NGR SJ 8750 4848). St Augustine''s was built in 1902 by the Little Sisters of the Poor as a care home for the aged poor. It continued in use as a care home for one hundred years, latterly under the management of Prime Life Ltd. Recently the building was used as a hostel for asylum seekers until its closure in 2004. The building recording identified a main east to west range with a wing at either end and a chapel at the rear. The project confirmed the chronological development of the building as is shown on the OS maps of 1899 to the present day. Some idea of the original layout and use of the individual rooms was also achieved. In the context of similar institutions of the time, St Augustine''s seems to have offered relatively comfortable accommodation and, unsurprisingly, to have provided for spiritual as well as physical needs, possibly with a great deal of tolerance towards non Catholic faiths. The later alterations that took place at St Augustine''s concentrated upon the subdivision of rooms and illustrate an increased regard for residents'' individuality and privacy.
