The Sir John Robinson Almshouses (commonly the Daybrook Almshouses are a collection of twelve two-bedroom cottages erected in 1899 on Mansfield Road, Daybrook, Arnold, Nottingham[2]

Sir John Robinson of the Home Brewery built the almshouses and also Daybrook Laundry in memory of his son John Sandford Robinson, an amateur jockey, who died in a horse-racing accident on 21 April 1898, aged 30 years.

The Almshouses were visited by King George V on 24 June 1914.[citation needed]

The almshouses are managed by the Sir John Robinson Homes charity (England and Wales Registered Charity № 217941).[3]
