Old Radford 1891 - Piggins Yard


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me was there a Piggins or Pippins Yard Radford in 1891 and if so where it was. I have the Yardley family from my past that lived there according to the 1891 Census.

Thank you again Cliff Ton map appreciated.  The only thing is it is in the 1891 census for Radford District 31 and is after Hyson Passage Linday Street, Pepper Yard, Mayatt Yard? Have included a snap shot of the page but not sure how clear it is.  Here is the web address as well.

Welcome, Bertie. I knew this area well...but not in 1891...although my grandparents would have been very familiar with it then.  My great aunt Lily was married at St Paul's Church, as was her older sister, Rose, before her.

 

So many of the features on CT's map, I remember from my childhood. The police station, the library, Kirkstead Street where several of my school chums lived, lovely shops where you could buy anything.

 

Then some idiot decided to build the concrete monstrosity flats.  The rest is downhill all the way. I wouldn't dare venture in that area alone now. Very sad.

I wouldn't venture round there with an armed guard. You can drive round there at 60mph and they can still remove your wing mirrors. Welcome Bertie.

Those other places you've mentioned were also on Lindsay Street.  The names aren't very clear but the red arrows indicate.....from left to right....Piggins Yard...Amos Yard....Wyatt Yard.....Pepper Yard........with Adams Street down the middle and Adams Cottages.
