Presumably you are referring to Wimbourne Road in Radford.


I've never lived there, but I have a once-removed connection with someone who did.   A family called Watkinson lived at 37 Wimbourne Road in the 50s and 60s (and had been there since at least the 1920s).  When I was doing family history research I discovered Charles Watkinson was a friend - and probably business associate - of my grandfather.

I lived on Alfreton Road above our shop and the entry at the rear came out on Wimbourne Road.

I was there from about 1959 to 1969 when I left Bentinck Primary and moved out of the area.


The families I remember on that road were the Halls, the Daleys, and the Pearces.

Hi there,


Yes I lived on Wimbourne Road at number 43.   I think you Peter Stevenson played for our football team - Nottingham Argyle

Best wishes
