Is anyone familiar with Lawrence Weston, Bristol?
« on: Thursday 22 March 18 18:45 GMT (UK) »
Looking through old papers with husband and came across a card his mum (now deceased) had been issued with when she was pregnant with him in 1960/61.

On it she gives an address of Humberstone Walk, Lawrence Weston. I canít find it, anywhere. Google gives nothing, knowyourplace Bristol nothing.

Did it ever exist? Husband muttering ďanother bloody mysteryĒ in slightly annoyed fashion.

Any help much appreciated.

It is indeed now Humberstan on modern maps - I was looking at a 1970s   A-Z
