Celebrating 125 years
with the 250th home in Poundbury

23 September 2015

Earlier this year, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, our Patron since 1997, handed over the keys to the 250th home we’ve built at Poundbury, Dorset.

Poundbury is an urban extension to Dorchester built according to architectural principles advocated by HRH The Prince of Wales, which intersperses affordable and privately owned homes.

Nathan and Sarah Dunford and three of their children (Samantha, 17, Alicia, 10, and Thomas, 2 received the keys to their new home from the prince.

The family had been living in Bridport, West Dorset for 20 years, and were on the waiting list for a four-bed house since the arrival of son Thomas.

Sarah Dunford said:

“We’d nearly given up hope of ever being able to move out of our previous house, which was overcrowded, when we were offered this home. We’re overjoyed, and never expected to be offered a property in such a wonderful location. Receiving the keys from His Royal Highness was a fantastic way to celebrate moving in.”
