An old people's home, run by the city, which would not be distinguished except that there was a common area with a window overlooking the busy road, which provided a splendid viewing opportunity for the residents.

The home was closed in September 2008 because it was too expensive to bring it up to modern standards. It was demolished in August-October 2009, to be replaced with a block of "affordable" flats for people aged over 55.
