Stacks Image 37
The Powerstock & District CLT was set up in 2012 in an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) with the aim of transforming the site, previously a builder’s scrap yard, into more affordable housing for local people. The name "Forge Orchard" was chosen because the site has a historic link to a former forge, and there's an apple orchard nearby.

The development was completed in February 2019. There are 8 properties:
-a 1 bedroom bungalow,
-a 1 bedroom house,
-five 2 bedroom houses
- one 3 bedroom house
 which were handed over to the CLT and the tenants moved in almost immediately.
