Amenities and Places of Interest

A row of six alms-houses was built in 1846 by Susan, Countess of Hardwicke.

The almshouses were for "poor people of good character who have resided in Wimpole or Arrington or the surrounding areas. Preference shall be given to widows"

The original six Almshouses have since been converted to four dwellings while retaining their original charm.  

The almshouses are a registered Charity (registration 202087).  

For further information please contact the Clerk of the Trustees Dr.Helen Eccles.

The Parish and Community

For a small village, Arrington is surrounded by numerous places of interest and has a strong community which offers lots of services, activities & clubs.

We have a village garden & pond maintained and supported by community and there are over 20 listed buildings in the village including the Grade 1 listed St.Nicholas Church which dates from around 1275-1300 and the Grade 2 listed Hardwicke Arms with 13th century origins but the main building work dating from 18th century.
