Paul Anthony Moore / 10,959 items
Eastbridge Hospital in Canterbury was founded by Edward Fitz Odbold, a wealthy Canterbury merchant. He built it to provide accommodation for poor pilgrims visiting the shrine of Thomas Becket. The hospital was in existence by 1172, and Rolph, the nephew of Becket, was probably the first master. It contains a large medieval fresco of Christ (see photo).
