Memory Lane is located in the grounds of Blossom Fields and The Grove.
With its traditional local pub, quaint post office and greengrocers, Oxo adverts on the walls and ration books on the tables, a stroll along this street is like stepping back to the 1950s.
The shops and pub are full of original 1950s memorabilia and are designed to look like the real thing.
The purpose of Memory Lane is to provide an attractive and interesting destination for the people we care for as well as reminiscence therapy – to improve psychological well-being in dementia sufferers.
