William Penny’s houses fourteen single occupancy flats plus Warden’s accommodation. There is a communal day room/sitting room, and also a lovely shared garden, which is well tended and well used by some of the residents.
In 1968, these flats were built originally to replace the Penny’s Hospital site, which at that time was facing possible closure to be re-opened as a living museum. In the end, those plans were scrapped, but the building of the flats went ahead, thanks to a generous substantial anonymous donation.
I have been a resident at William Penny’s for about sixteen years, and I am very happy living here. From the moment I walked in it felt like coming home. I have everything I need right here.’
