Monastery marked to become a care village

Posted on October 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Developers planning to create a £25 million luxury residential care village at a famous former monastery set in the Gloucestershire countryside say they are encouraged by the level of interest in the scheme.

Bristol-based PG Group, whose chairman is Father Gregory Grant, the Dean of East Bristol, and the Springhill Care Group of Accrington, Lancashire, hope to to convert the large monastery building at Prinknash Abbey near Gloucester into 80 to 90 extracare retirement apartments for the over 55s and build a 90-bed care home.
