This use to be the Childrens' Home in Curlew Way, Moreton. It's now a home for the disabled.

I was there back in 60s. Anyone else out there been there or lived near it?

According to my 'contact' it was in use as a Children's Home from late 1951 until the end of March 1995.

I grew up in Curlew way, and we always played with the kids from the childrens home. One lad ran away and wanted to stay at our house..his name was Tommy Lowe, he's still a good friend now too..
