I don't think it's being demolished. According to the planning applications on Gedling Council website, the building is being converted into apartments (for real people rather than students).

Rob had a brother (Mick) and a sister (Carol - married name Comerie).  His dad was Cyril Thomas and his mum Evelyn (nee Hallam).  Cyril had a brother Sid and a sister Lucy (married name Moseby).  His father (Rob's grandad) was Robert William Shelton - I believe he was born in Carlton, but can't be certain.

Am I right in remembering the armed forces used to park all their military vehicles on wasteland at the bottom of Carlton Hill, opposite Carlton square?

When I lived near Parks Corner I remember watching the convoy of tanks trundling past. About 1977/8.
