Church Estate Almshouses are Grade II listed[1] almshouses in Richmond, London, located on Sheen Road, near Hickey's Almshouses. Most of the buildings date from 1843 but the charity that built them is known to have existed in Queen Elizabeth I's time and may have much earlier origins.[2]

The almshouses are now managed by The Richmond Charities.[2][3] New residents are accepted from 65 years of age.[4]
