About the build

The story - developing Lancaster Cohousing

We have won a number of awards for different aspects of the build.

We have created a timeline, charting the development of Lancaster Cohousing from when a small group first had the idea of creating a community together, to moving in and starting to live at Forgebank.

As well as being of interest to people considering moving to Forgebank, it may be useful to forming cohousing groups and self build organisations, as well as to researchers and professionals.

It’s work in progress, and we will gradually be adding to the timeline to include what has happened in the years since we moved in.
