Hi

I entered the road name but it did not show that the road existed.  From an earlier post it suggests that the road may not now be in existence.  Hence I drew a blank.

Thank you

The road definitely exists - you should even be able see moving photos of it in Google Maps link I sent.  I looked up the road name before sending you the information, and saw it with my own eyes.  I cannot see from your profile if you are living in the UK, but I can't understand why you should not be able to see the place on the map if you follow the instruction on reply # 13.

(Once the map comes up, you can then drag the yellow man onto the road and then you would be able to see the moving pictures).

Good luck.

Hi

Well I have just retried it as you suggested and it worked tonight.  I am in the UK by the way. 

Thank you very much for the time that you have spent helping me, I have downloaded the document and will shortly be having a read through.   It will be interesting to see if there is a picture available.

Thanks again

I dont' know if you still need info on this building ?
Its actually the building called Norman Latham house, on Old Shoreham Road, Southwick, west sussex.

It is, or was a nursing home but i can remember researching it as a childrens home many years ago.  I haven't been by that way recently, so cannot tell you if its still a used building.

Hi - Yes I am still gathering info on this building, thank you for your info.  I have sort of lost the momentum on the search because I keep hitting brick walls but something always comes along to get you going again.

Thanks again

I know what you mean about hitting brick walls  ::)

The building is on the actual boarder of Southwick and Portslade. Basically the whole 'top road' as we call it, goes from " Upper Shoreham Road" in Shoreham through to Old Shoreham Road in Southwick and then Portslade.

I will come back in a moment and get you the google street view of the building as it is today.
Regards
Lorraine

Ok. Go to Google Street View. Tap in BN42 and then look for St Louis Close along the Old Shoreham Road.
You should see on the junction of the two roads a large white building which has a sign saying Care Home.  That is it.
