About Thirsk and Sowerby Society

The Thirsk and Sowerby Society runs a sheltered house, The Limes in the Thirsk area. Our retirement property is run to offer sheltered living but allows our residents to still retain their independence.

The Abbeyfield Thirsk and Sowerby Society is part of the national Abbeyfield movement. This was established by Major Richard Carr-Gomm in 1956 in response to the loneliness and isolation he found amongst older people in East London. Since then, Abbeyfield has grown to be one of the largest organisations in the voluntary sector serving older people.

The Limes

Located in the main street of Sowerby, The Limes is ideally situated within walking distance of Thirsk Town Centre where you can access bus services and travel to nearby towns and cities such as York and Ripon and Easingwold. We are an excellent starting point for visiting the coast and other nearby attractions such as Fountains Abbey and Newby Hall. Thirsk also has a railway station on the main line which is 10 minutes away from the Limes by car for travel further afield.
