Ditchling Road

Childhood memories of a nursery

By Jennifer Drury

I recently received the note below from longtime MyB&Her Sandra Bohtlingk. So I sent Mouldy our trusty snapper off to get a shot of the nursery of her dreamy childhood memories.

Sandra wrote:-

On the left-hand corner of Ditchling Road and Rosehill Terrace is a creamy white house set back. In the late 1940’s this was a children’s nursery where my mother left me on occasions.

I seem to recall the front garden area was a place where we could play on fine days. At that time we lived with my grandparents in Shaftesbury Road.

Well, as you can see - the house is no longer the 'creamy white' of Sandra's childhood reminiscences - but hopefully she is not too disappointed.

Do you remember the nursery? Maybe you went there? You might even remember Sandra. Please share any memories by posting a comment below.

Many thanks Jennifer, and Tony, for bringing this picture to the site. I was very tiny at the time but can still remember something of the place.
