Lockermarsh has a lot of history within the community of Thorne. The original house was built in 1661. The home still has lots of its original features including beams and fireplaces. Lockermarsh was originally a farmhouse.

Within Lockermarsh we offer a dementia-friendly environment that stimulates senses and evokes memories. The residents enjoy home-cooked food of their choice and a varied activity programme which includes reminiscence and life story work, quizzes, board games, musical activities, special themed events, art and crafts and a hairdressing service. We have a specialist activities coordinator working with residents and the local community to provide inspiring engaging activities within the home and outside in the wider area.
