  • Looks like Acacia House before the planting of conifers in the front garden and the replacement of the concrete block front wall

  • Yes you are right, David, it is Acacia House, the home of the Marsh family. As teenagers growing up in Bottesford, it was a favourite meeting spot across the road on the other wall that was boundary wall of the Rutland Hotel. In fact that wall was the scene of many accidents of cars and lorries coming from Nottingham.

  • I lived in Acacia house with my parents George and May Marsh and my brother Fred from 1942 to 1951. We stayed there living with my grand parent Lily Marsh, who’s house it was for a great many years more until she died age 93 (I think). Lily Marsh survived her husband George Marsh senior who died when I was only 4 years old. My uncle Alec Marsh (Lily’s second son) moved back into the family home with his mother Lily from about 1966.

  • My Great grandmother, Jane Welch (nee Barber), was living at Acacia House when she died on Aug 28, 1951 at the age of 94. I wonder what her relationship was to the Marsh’s?
