I think this might be the old nurses home which stood next to the bowling green.

1881 census shows the address as 2 Park Road South if that helps. A fascinating read. Interesting to note that they find it necessary to state that each boarder has their own bed!

Cheers Nightwalker, so that would be the opposite side of the park from Para's thoughts, Need Derek to put a Street/building map up.

I guess 2,Park Rd. South would be next to the Gothic Lodge, the building marked "inst." on the map.

I have read about this but cant find it again. Bert has me spot on.My question is what was the building I am thinking of.I can remember going to dances in the buiding in the sixties. It was demolished in the late seveties, I think. When I was reading the History of the building (colledge etc) I took it to be the one on North Road.I was doing double smackers with my coat collar in my mouth in the 50s, around the park so a good chance we galloped past each other.

Thanks Chris, Derek, so Para may be right, i was thinking of the bowling greens the other side of the park, this building may have been it.
