Outside the village, Ewelme is renowned, particularly in architectural circles as the home of a remarkable charitable foundation, the almshouse charity.
God's House in Ewelme was established in 1437 by Alice, first Duchess of Suffolk and the granddaughter of the poet Geoffrey Chaucer.
The Trust is simply the custodian of generous, centuries-old endowments. The beneficiaries in each generation are the embodiment of its spirit in their daily lives of the community.
Further information about the Ewelme Trust can be found via the links here on this website and in the Charity Commission Register.
The Education Awards (click here) are an important part of the charitable foundation.
