Adams Way is a large development of 48 one and two bed apartments built to form a courtyard behind a Grade II listed Georgian Workhouse. The building dates back to 1792 and was converted in 1986 to accommodate 11 of the one-bedroomed flats. Residents take a pride in maintaining small gardens and container pots around the courtyard.
The regular coffee mornings and a good programme of other activities give an opportunity to socialise with other residents, should you wish to do so. A professional on-site manager looks after buildings and grounds maintenance and repairs, as well as helping you to access further help and support if you need it.
Residents each have a key to a locked gate that leads directly to the Health Centre, pharmacy, and a new supermarket. A regular bus service to the main high street a mile away is at the end of the gardens. There is a private sports club with pool less than ten minutes’ walk from Adams Way.
