  • History

    The building started life in 1888 as four cottages for families, built by local craftsmen. The houses were converted in the 1920s to a doctors' surgery, then to offices. Finally, they have fallen into disuse over the last eight years. Our vision is to redevelop these now run-down, empty, former houses into a place of welcome, hope, life, acceptance and care. We want to make this building home again to our local community.
