The Poor Close is a field adjoining Broading Lane to the West, and is an "L" shaped area of approximately 3 acres. The grass field is hedged with hawthorn all round. The field is let by closed tender annually on Easter Monday.
The Poor Close Charity is for the support of Laneham Parishioners that find themselves in financial hardship. Small cash grants are available at the discretion of the Trustees. All applications should be made in writing to the Chairman of the Trustees or directly to any Trustee. All applications are dealt with in the strictest confidence.
The Charity was set up by the Reverend Edmund Wallace on 16th May 1833 to "provide bread for poor persons"
