Sheltered Housing

Yardley Gardens – B33

“This small development is situated in the peaceful conservation area of Old Yardley, featuring the 11th century St Edburgha’s Church and the black and white timbered Trust School, built in the 15th century. It was built in 1903, modernised in 1988 and consists of eight bungalows and two flats, as well as a cosy residents’ lounge.
