Beverley History – Tymperon House, Walkergate
Take a stroll down Walkergate in Beverley today and you’ll notice a large home at the corner of Dog and Duck Lane called Tymperon’s House. Built in 1731 as a hospital for the benefit of the poor and needy following the death of the benefactor William Tymperon, the house became part of the Alborough Estate, which produced an annual income for the charitable hospital of £250. Each of the 10 Tymperon residents received 6 shillings (30p) per week, a coal allowance, and clothing.
Tymperon House in Beverley is now a designated Grade II listed building.
