We are an intentional Camphill community of some 20 individuals. All of us have special gifts and abilities which we bring into our shared life.

We all have consciously and freely chosen to be part of Gannicox and wish to engage in a rich and colourful tapestry of relationships across all ages and abilities.

Some of us need particular support to stay healthy, be safe, make informed choices and fulfill our aspirations. We have chosen this community to be supported by co-workers and other individuals whom we know well and trust. In turn this gives us the scope to live life to the full and give to others, both at Gannicox and in the wider community.

Gannicox House changed hands and purpose many times over the centuries. Between 1950 and 1980 it was a nursing home, incorporated one of the first anthroposophical medical NHS practices in the country. The NHS practice has now closed, but a range of anthroposophical therapies continue to be available at St Luke’s Therapy Centre.

Some 20 years ago Gannicox developed into the current Camphill life-sharing community with St Luke’s Therapy Centre next door. The house with its outbuildings also incorporates the Sunlands Waldorf Kindergarten.

The house has recently undergone a major renovation and refurbishment project, enabled through a generous legacy.
