Thanks Jim It looks like they stayed in a fairly close area once they got to Worcestershire the mystery still remains though Why did they chose the various stopping points? are well they aren't around to answer so I'll go and chase up another line for a bit

Found it with the help of Bromsgrove library.
Forelands Open-air school for cripples was at Rock Hill, in Bromsgrove for the treatment of children with tubercular bone disease.  It opened 1919 and closed in 1967
Thank you everyone for helping

PS
There was also an Isolation Hospital just across the main road and less than half a mile in Hill Top.

This is a verrry old thread but just goes to show how we need to keep an open mind and keep looking.
I was convinced the school that the library found was correct and posted the information on our web site BUT today some 12 years later I found a tiny tatty old envelope which contained a reference for my mother dated 1940 on the envelope is written "Hunter's Hill Open Air School Blackwell Nr Bromsgrove
So there it was hidden among my own clutter!!
