New hostel for the homeless, Factory Row, Torquay
These steps, part of a handy pedestrian route from Abbey Road to Castle Circus, were closed for some years while the former centre for the homeless was demolished; it has now been replaced with this new building and the route reopened.
"The new hostel for homeless and vulnerable single people is to be named after its founder Leonard Stocks, who set up the Torbay Churches Homeless Trust at Factory Row in 1990.
"It will help around 50 people a year as each person will have a six-month tenancy.
"It will have 24 bedrooms with en-suite facilities as well as training rooms, staff offices, GP consulting room, treatment room, and a roof terrace." LinkExternal link
