The Robert Henry Falkner Almshouses


The Almshouses, located in The Street, Woodham Walter, are owned by a charitable trust called the Robert Henry Falkner Almshouses’ Trust.

 The Almshouses were built in 1908 by the three sons of the Reverend Robert Henry Falkner, in memory of their father, who was the Rector of St Michael’s Woodham Walter from 1875 to 1907.

 The sons specified in the Trust Deed that in their father’s memory, the two Almshouses were to be occupied by parishioners described as:

 “… poor persons who are of good character and who, from ill-health accident or infirmity are unable to maintain themselves from their own exertions.” 


Following extensive refurbishment, Almshouse No.2 will shortly be available to receive a new beneficiary. If you are interested in applying or know of anyone who might be interested, please write in the first instance to


Mr Angus Neale 

Clerk to The Almshouses,


Little Baddow Road,

Woodham Walter,

CM9 6RP.


Who will be pleased to supply full details.

Closing date for applications is 31st July 2016.
