Welcome to Ushers Meadow, a small retirement development set just off Dallas Road. When it comes to retirement living, this location is hard to fault.

Stroll into the city for a coffee with friends, buy your loaf, freshly baked from Fibberts bakery. Marks and Spencers could easily become your local convenience store.
