Farnell's Almshouses, Isleworth
Farnellís Almshouses are located behind St Johnís Church, Isleworth.
An expanding population in the 1840s caused overcrowding at All Saintsí Church, Isleworth, and a second church was proposed to ease this. The Duke of Northumberland gave a site on St Johnís Road and donated £2,000 towards the cost of construction, the balance being raised by the community. Much of the money for the church was given by the Farnell and Glossop families. The vicarage, school and almshouses were all the gift of Mr John Farnell, owner of the Isleworth Brewery. Farnellís Almshouses were built in 1858 to provide accommodation for six men and six women.They now comprise 13 bed-sitter terraced bungalows.
