How can I find out more about the community?

To keep up with what is happening, please have a look at our social media (especially Facebook) and sign up for our newsletter where you will also find out about opportunities to look around or participate in a knowledge sharing event for forming cohousing groups. This is in addition to Colchester’s Heritage Open Days when our historic mill is on display. Because Cannock Mill Cohousing is our home, we don’t encourage unannounced visits.

If you are interested in living here, our joining process is explained in its own section of this website. Otherwise, please look at our ‘Contact us’ page.
