All the residents have now moved into Forgebank, our cohousing project of private homes, community facilities, workshops/offices/studios and shared outdoor space. The site is just outside Lancaster on the outskirts of the village of Halton and offers stunning views of the river Lune. The project is being built on ecological values in partnership with our architects, Ecoarc and our builders, Whittle Construction.
We only have one one bed flat for sale privately. If the house type you are interested in is not currently available please consider applying to our waiting pool or contacting us for further information.
We welcome people who want to rent, people buying to rent to others and people looking to develop shared ownership. If any of these options might suit you contact us to discuss possibilities.
