Hi Hazelnuts,

If you key the name into Google, there's quite a few articles. (I didn't read them)

It's WEEDIN S HALL Childrens Home, Polmont.

I hope you find what you're looking for.

Anne

Hi there, I have heard of Weedinshall, not sure if it's still standing or not.  roughly in the same area as the newly opened Grandsable Cemetery

Hi, just spotted tis post, Weedingshall was last used as a residential childrens home 30 years ago. It was then used by social work services as 'day unit' for children who would not attend or follow school rules, in old fashioned terms a list D school. It has recently in the past two years closed altogether although the building still stands. Its on the corner of the grantsable cemetry and salmon inn road junction.

Hi Hazel - I was in Weedingshall childrens home as a child . . I arrived there when I was 6 months old so that was 49 years ago . . you can walk through the woods in Polmont to the house as I remember going with our pocket money to the Sweety shop on a Saturday. Rab
