Shirle Hill Cohousing is a thriving, developing and learning community of ten households in Nether Edge, Sheffield, aged from 2 to 74. We took over the acre of grounds and an old stately home turned NHS childrens centre and have revived it with five flats in the victorian/georgian house and five new Ecohouses in the grounds. We aim to share tasks, work, meals and fun as much as possible, while maintaining our own independence and privacy with our own front doors. We are lucky to share a large living room, dining room/kitchen, laundry, developing garden and allotment and bike and car storage. We aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible within our means and play an active part in our local community.
