According to my copy of "Wright's" directory of 1868 De Ligne was off Wood Street Radford

Baring in mind large chunks of Radford were still to be Developed at that time.

And today...This is Montfort street off Ilkeston Road.

Oxford Square was on this corner,and those houses in the distance on Ilkeston Road were there at the time.

This is looking down De Ligne Street towards Montfort Street (where the kids are). The entrance to Oxford Square would be just beyond the church building which is marked on both maps.

I never fail to be impressed by the knowledge and archive material of Bubble, Cliff and Pooh, the Three Wise Men perhaps ?
