About

Forgebank is an eco cohousing development consisting of 35 leasehold homes, shared buildings and riverside woodland habitat. The site is just outside Lancaster on the outskirts of the village of Halton right next to the river Lune.

We aspire to be a cutting edge example of sustainable ‘eco’ design, for both living and working, with close links to the local community. The homes have achieved both Passivhaus and Code for Sustainable Homes level 6 certifications, and we benefit from many eco technologies such as a biomass boiler, solar PV and hydroelectricity.
