21. HOSPITAL OF LONG BLANDFORD
Hutchins states that there was here a hospital for lepers, mentioned in an old deed of the date of 10 Edward I. (fn. 1) Nothing further is known of its existence, but local tradition preserves its memory in a farmhouse within the parish of Langton or Langton Long Blandford, known as St. Leonard's Farm.
22. HOSPITAL OF ST. MARY AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, LYME
Beyond one reference we know nothing of a hospital for lepers founded here. In 1336 Bishop Robert Wyville of Salisbury granted an indulgence for the repair of the fabric and belltower. (fn. 2)
