The Court

Sir Gabriel Wood Court was built in 1974 for the purpose of providing affordable rented accommodation for retired ex seafarers and their spouses. There are 10 studio apartments and 20 one bedroom flats set amidst the beautiful gardens. In 2012 tenants   benefitted from the external renovations to the outside which saw the building come alive with a beautiful two colour render being applied. As well as the pleasing aesthetics the rendering also acts as a cost efficient insulation to the building.


We currently have 1 one bedroom & 1 studio apartment for let.

The Court has secure door entry system, a beautiful foyer complete with relaxing chairs and a bookcase full of books where tenants can sit and have a read or just simply relax. It also boasts a comfortable communal lounge complete with cups and kettle where tenants can sit and have a cuppa and catch up with each other.

Tenants are also regularly invited to party nights held in the main Home.
