Northbrook Nursing Home

At Market Lavington Museum, we are so grateful to the people who put together scrapbooks of newspaper cuttings, recording and dating past events in our locality. This has not been done in recent years and we would be very pleased if a volunteer felt able to restart this for us.

Many Market Lavington folk still refer to the nursing home in the old vicarage on the High Street as Dalecare although it is now run as

But how many of us remember that, before Market Lavington Care Home and Dalecare, we had a facility known as Northbrook Nursing Home, although it was not on our road called Northbrook?

This advert in our 1982 to 1983 scrapbook reminds us of its imminent opening and, in November 1983, it was advertised again, presumably as an up and running concern.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
