Today, Liverpool Road, Cloudesley Place, Cloudesley Road and Richmond Avenue form the boundary of ‘the Stony Fields’. From 1811, houses were built on the fields and the area became known as the Stonefield or Cloudesley Estate. The charity still owns around 100 properties on the Estate, and income from these properties and from the charity’s investments are used to support the charity.
