There is a large old biulding near Bradfield on Mortimer Road, a beautiful biulding which is just rotting away now, but that used to be an orphanage.

My Dad and his brother and sisters were in Lane End Childrens home at Chapeltown in the mid to late thirtys for a few years. it was still a childrens home up to the early 70s as I remember. Other than what my dad has told me, there seems to be no information on the place. Would love to learn more. It sounded like a very strict place, with some cruel Victorian women running the place!

I beleive my grandmother went to catholic orphanage at the turn of the the 2oth century somewhere along Glossop Road. Her address in 1918 was 167 Glossop Road. This may have been the School of the Sisters of Notre Dame. I dont know if she stayed on at the school as a helper or assistant. Does anyone know if this was an orphanage or a boarding school.
