  1. Hiya Mate,

    Your mum's place - the Gables is on the corner on Sherwood Rise backed on to Ebury Road - you can Google Map it.

    It is now a care home called Acacia Care Home(s) Hope this helps.

  2. Thanks for the replies, My mum also lived on Nottingham Road since birth until she married and said this place was just down the road from where she lived,she said there was a church nearby but not next door to it..Having spoken to her again we have worked out it must have been around 1967 she was there. I have seen other places nearby with the name "The Gables" and also wondered if they were connected in any way but can find absolutly nothing online which I find annoying as usually you can find anything online!
  3. Thank you for the reply but Its not the same place...She said it was definatly mixed..and more like a hospital than a childrens home...Been trawling the net all night and can find zilch! Do you know of any other way I can find out what this place was?
  4. Hiya, Not sure if this is in the right place but trying to find some info on the net for my mum but can find Zilch,so hoping someone here can help! My mum stayed in a place in the early 1960's when she was about 11...Called The Gables on Nottingham Road New Basford,she was originally told it was a childrens hospital,but then later told by her Mother it was a childrens home and she was put there for a few weeks.My mum has virtually no memory of this although she does remember her and the other kids being fed lots of pills..tranqilisers,anti depressives etc. Does anyone remember this place an
