Newbury Almshouse Trust
Newbury Almshouse Trust looks after the following almshouses in Newbury: Lower Raymond’s, Newtown Road; Upper Raymond’s, Newtown Road; St Bartholomew’s, Argyle Road; St Mary’s, Derby Road; Hunt’s, St David’s Road.
Lower Raymond’s, Upper Raymond’s and St Bartholomew’s are listed buildings and have been refurbished and modernised in recent years. All are within walking distance of the town centre, shops and post office. Most are one-person almshouses on two floors (ground and first); a very few are single storey. All are compact and comfortable, but in the majority of the houses residents must be able to manage steep stairs.
People aged 55 and over with at least three years’ residence in Newbury or its former (1974) Rural District, are eligible to apply. Fully completed applications will be considered by the Trustees.
