Hi. I've just come across this thread after doing a Google search. I know it's 4 years out of date but I may be able to help. When I was a child I had nervous tics very badly and I was under a child p

While growing up (yes I Did) i can remember three hospitals for the mentaly ill patients, 

1 /  Was the Coppice Hospital  which was Ransom Rd Mappley now Ransom Rd was renamed Coppice and goes from the bottom of St Ann's Well Rd up to Woodbrough Rd.  I can remember going to Coppice reck and across the road from the reck, was the former gardeners lodge which before the gardeners lodge it u3/sed to be the hospital lodge also known as Hine Lodge. The hospital was remened Hlne Hall. 

2/ Also I can remember what we called Mapperley Hospital this was top of Gorden rd and enterance came on to Porchester Rd. 

From memories the fisrt one was for really bad paients and the second one was for the no so bad ones.

3/ not sure if there was a 3rd just seem to think there was.

A member brought up the subject of Childrens homes, 

The one that I can recall was called Gorden Boys home on Crammer St it says that it was for destitute boys of all ages. Founder in 1958 in Moved to Alexandra Park, the old building is now student accmodation. Gorden Homes first set up 1885 Shakespesr St. 

I think that I have all the info right if not please feel free to tell me.
