Lifespan Community Collective (aka Townhead Collective) is made up of around 15 adults and 7 kids
We have 19 old railway cottages on 3 acres of land in rural Yorkshire.
Lifespan was formed in the early seventies as a rural community and has been through different stages of communal living.
At present, it is a housing co-op whose main aim is to provide housing for its members.
We have our own personal space, as well as communal areas comprising of rooms for visitors, living room, kitchen, bathroom and games room.
We try to live with as little impact on the environment as possible. We are off grid and produce our own electricity from solar and wind and compost our toilet waste.
Some organic fruit and vegetables are grown in the garedens and help is always appreciated.
If you are interested in visiting, please contact us via e-mail and we will let you know the date of the next work weekend. We hold around six work weekends throughout the year and all visitors are welcome.
Work weekends are a good opportunity to meet members, have communal meals and get to know how the place work.
We are open to new members and occasionally have vacancies;the first meeting preferably being at a work weekend.
We have a down to earth vibe and DIY culture.
Public transport is available but minimal.
