There’s no reason for almshouses to be purpose built, though most were. All that’s needed is a suitable place to live. In recent times there have been a few instances of leasing a flat in a block, such in the case of Watford David Salter. This isn’t new; Kings Langley Strettell Memorial was leased over a century ago.

The Standon United Charities use a flat in Vintage Court, to the south of Puckeridge and the west of Standon. It’s located behind the petrol station in Cambridge Road – not exactly an idyllic description for an estate agent. Till recently it wasn’t that close to other properties, but at the time of writing a new housing estate was being built close by. Access to Standon involves negotiating fairly steep hills. Puckeridge is a little closer and the road flatter.

Readers are referred to the article Standon Hadham Road and Wadesmill Barclay for details of other properties run by the charity.
