Sheltered housing is a term covering a wide range of rented housing for older and/or disabled or other vulnerable people. In the United Kingdom most it refers to grouped housing such as a block or "scheme" of flats or bungalows with a scheme manager or "officer". Sheltered housing schemes in the U. K. are owned and maintained as social housing by a local authority or housing association. Sheltered housing accommodation is self-contained and easy to manage, ranging from a simple bedsit to a large flat or small house; such schemes are distinct from a nursing home or care home in that the tenants are able to look after themselves, are active and are afforded a degree of independence. Many schemes garden where tenants can socialise. Many sheltered housing schemes are open only to people aged 60 or over although some accept people from the age of 55; this age restriction however is changing as the deciding factors in offering potential residents accommodation is being widened in recognition of the idea that being vulnerable and in need of support is not always age related.
There is no upper age limit, the deciding factor instead being whether the person is independent enough to look after themselves or if they need care. A number of housing associations are now considering the rising need for this type of accommodation and are adding suitable accommodation in plans for their new social housing developments. Many of these developments are entitled to apply for funding from local governments to provide suitable housing for the more vulnerable members of the community. Extra care sheltered housing schemes provide a greater level of access and mobility for frail older people, with a domiciliary care service and personal care element being available within the scheme alongside the manager. In addition meals are provided and as they are eaten in the communal dining room it provides an opportunity for social interaction and combats loneliness.

Warden is a village in Northumberland, England about 2 miles west of Hexham. The North and South Tyne meet near the village of Warden. There is a pleasant walk from the Boat Inn along the bank of the South Tyne to the meeting of the waters; the Boat Inn was the place of a ferry until the toll bridge was built across the river. The toll house still stands; the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway crosses the river by a built iron bridge. Warden is dominated by the old motte, now tree covered, higher still are the earthworks of a prehistoric fort; the church boasts one of the slender Anglo-Danish towers. The churchyard appears oval in shape, which reinforces the notion of the great age of these Tyne parish centres. A carved stone stands close to the tower, but nothing more is claimed for it than being a'market cross'. As, there is no record of a market here, inherently unlikely because of the proximity of Hexham market, a better case for its origin may be as one of the boundary crosses marking the sanctuary limits or'frith' of St Wilfrid's church at Hexham.
The socket of one such cross survived near the road at Acomb. From Warden one can see eastwards among the trees which rise on the northern slope of the valley the spire of the Church of St John Lee on high ground at Acomb, it commemorates the hermitage of St John of Beverley, sometime bishop of Hexham. The present church is no older than 1818-85. From High Warden, on the hillside, a path leads to a large fortified British camp crowning the hill, which gives a fine outlook over the surrounding country. Warden is in the parliamentary constituency of Hexham. Warden is situated on a triangle of land between the two Tynes, it had a water mill on the North Tyne and a paper mill on the South Tyne, which started in 1763 and still exists. A century ago a visitor described; the mill employed 63 hands. The church at Warden is dedicated to St Michael, has a fine upstanding Anglo Saxon tower dating back to the eleventh century, built of Roman stone. Indications are that there was a church earlier than the tower, in the post Conquest period, another church was added to the tower.
The tower arch is built of Roman material from Chesters. Transepts were added in the thirteenth century making the church cruciform in shape. There were alterations in the eighteenth century, the chancel was rebuilt in 1889. In the chancel is a Norman grave-cover, the best of its kind in the county, its shape and tile decoration symbolise a house of the dead. There are a number of incised grave covers in the porch, a Roman altar, carved with Saxon knot-work, it has been split and reversed "to empty out the devils." An 18th century horsing-stool stands at the church-gate. Three of the bells in the church were cast in 1878 by the Newcastle firm of Sons. There is a Methodist church built in 1851. In appearance it resembles a barn rather than an ecclesiastical edifice. GENUKI
Warden of the Mint
Warden of the Mint was a high-ranking position at the Royal Mint in England from 1216–1829. The warden was responsible for a variety of minting procedures and acted as the immediate representative of the current monarch inside the mint; the role of warden changed through history with the original task being the receiving and payment for bullion, while evolving into more of an administerial role. The office received a yearly emolument of £500 and up until 1685 wardens were given tenure meaning many wardens died while in office. Although technically subordinate to the Master of the Mint whose jobs was act as a contractor to the crown many wardens advanced on to become Master of the Mint with some wardens holding both offices at the same time; the most illustrious holder of the office of Warden of the Mint was Isaac Newton, warranted to this position on the recommendation of his friend, Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1698. In 1699 however, Newton undertook the office of Master of the Mint, far more lucrative, as well as more technically challenging.
After the death of the final warden Sir Walter James, 1st Baronet in 1829 the office was abolished having existed for 613 years. Münzwardein Master of the Mint Galileo Project Biography of Newton Royal Mint Biography of Newton Institute of Historical Research – Wardens of the Mint
