History of The Lapworth Charity
Between the 15th and 18th centuries the following made gifts for the benefit of St Mary’s Church and the people of Lapworth:
The land, properties and funds and those derived from them have been combined together and now provide a unified fund known as the Lapworth Charity, the income of which is used to provide the same kind of benefits indicated by the original benefactors.
In the early 1960’s the Trustees, with consent of the Charity Commission, built almshouse accommodation at Pound Close on the Old Warwick Road, which was previously the site of near derelict cottages owned by the Charity. Eight bungalows were constructed in 1963 and six flats in 1972.
