Enfield Street, St Stephen's Parish

Recommended Posts

Hello

Whilst researching the Nottingham part of my family history, I have come across a branch of the family who, in the 1901 census, lived at 2 Enfield Street, in St Stephen's parish. I can't find the street on a current map and haven't (yet) found it on the excellent map posted by bamber. I'm still looking though! Does anybody know definitely where the street was?

Many thanks

Paul

Hello

2 Enfield Street, in St Stephen's parish.

Do you know if that is St Stephen's in Sneinton? (although I don't even know if there is another St Stephen's anywhere else)

Hi Paul,

Enfield Street (now demolished) was in Hyson Green between Radford Road opposite Belton Street (Belton Street is still there) and ran through to the junction of Plimsoll Street and Gauntley Street (Gauntley Street is still there). This is right next door to St Stephens Church, Bobbers Mill, Hyson Green.

The area was demolished in the 70's and Radford Police Station stands to the north.

Hi Paul,

Enfield Street (now demolished) was in Hyson Green between Radford Road opposite Belton Street (Belton Street is still there) and ran through to the junction of Plimsoll Street and Gauntley Street (Gauntley Street is still there). This is right next door to St Stephens Church, Bobbers Mill, Hyson Green.

The area was demolished in the late 60's and Radford Police Station stands to the north.

Hi littlebro

Many thanks, that's just what I needed to know. One lady - who I didn't know much about, and doesn't appear to be on the 1901 census, and seems to have been another aunt to my mother - maried someone who lived in this road. As her family lived in Red Hill, that seems fairly logical

regards

Paul

Housing in the area was pretty poor compared with today. I bet the community was good though.

Plimsoll Street

Our posts crossed in the ether! Yes you are right. My great aunt (the one I *did* know about) later moved to Edwin Street, Daybrook. I have the estate agents notes from when the house was sold after she died in 1987 (for £13000), and it sounds like it was a similar type of property, although smaller.

Thanks for posting the link to the photo

Babs, there was a Plimsoll Street near Gauntly Street/Radford Road; is that the one you are thinking of? I guess Plimsoll Terrace was somewhere off it.

'Plimsoll'; I'm going to look this word up - adds a new dimension to the black and white, canvas, soft shoes we'd wear as kids. :)

You could combine the two; have a mark up the side of your gym shoe to find out how deep the water is
