The Limes, Church Street, Lower Gornal.
This dwelling had a corner plot at the junction of Church Street and St. James's Street, it was occupied in 1912 by Dr. Alexander McGraw McMillan, M.D., who was the Medical Officer of Health for Sedgley UDC.
Dr. Donald Cunningham lived at the Limes during the 1930s-1950s, he had a distinct Scottish accent and was a much respected GP.
His surgery was located in Abbey Road at that time.
Later he moved to a new house on the Himley Road.
After 1988, The Limes had become a nursing home and known as 'New Elms', a little later it was renamed 'Lomond Vale' nursing home, it was demolished in 2008 and replaced with a small housing development.
Picture showing the site just after demolition in 2008, parts of the original stone perimeter walling has been reclaimed and rebuilt along St. James Street.

2 Straits Green.
The rear facing the road, photographed shortly before demolition.
This old cottage was demolished in 2008 and a pair of modern bungalows were erected on the plot.
Unusually, the back of the house was facing Straits Green road, it appears to have been two adjoining houses at one time.
The drywall of red sandstone has also disappeared.
