Hi Eilleen

Possibly all you will ever want to know about the Workhouse http://www.workhouses.org.uk/index.html?Lincoln/Lincoln.shtml

My great-gran died there in 1943 (at which time it was Burton Rd Institution).  As her home address was given as Moorland Crescent, I suspect it was perhaps in use as a hospital in those days.

Boys Home http://www.hiddenlives.org.uk/homes/LINCO01.html

My 1920's street plan has Lincoln and Lincolnshire Home for Girls on Belle Vue, Carline Road.

I guess you'll have to ask at the Archives - they'll probably know far more than anyone on here.
Don't cry because its over. Smile because it happened.

Why on earth do you go there?  Fishing?  I used to fish there occasionally.

I grew up less than 100 yards from Starmer's Pit - just across the railway in Anderby Drive.

We moved to Rookery Lane - just two doors away from the shops at the junction - in 1967, so we were practically neighbours ;)

                Geoff,

 Must have passed on the street ;D

Had the flat's acrossed the road from Stephenson's post office been built by the time you moved there ?
I only asked, because I was talking about the field that use to be there, but I could not remember when they built the flat's  ::)

I'm not sure if they were there when we moved there in 1967.  I was away at Uni till 1969.

It was Elsey House I think, named after Councillor Chuck Elsey (who worked with my uncle at Bucyrus).
