Walden Pond (St Leonards on Sea)
Walden Pond was set up in 1997 to provide affordable and secure housing for people working for social change. The co-op is committed to social justice, environmental responsibility and community involvement.
Walden Pond aims to provide its members with living, working and campaigning space, to nurture a creative spirit of collaboration and sharing, and to promote engagement with wider society.
In January 2001, Walden Pond bought a large Victorian house in St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex, and we settled into a much more stable and productive lifestyle! In 2002, the co-op bought a nearby flat to house more members.
2006 saw the completion of council –funded renovation work on our flat. Areas in which our members are active include anti-war activism, anti-roads campaigning, running a community centre, political art, Peace News Summer Camp, and activist training. We do not generally seek new members but we will gladly provide advice and support for anyone interested in learning about co-ops and thinking of setting up their own.
