Manfull Street - Lenton

Photographs | Memories


In this 1961 shot, the photographer, George Roberts, was standing on Head Street looking towards the junction with Willoughby Street. Across the road, on the other side of Willoughby Street, is the short stretch of roadway known as Manfull Street. At the end of Manfull street it was possible to turn left on to Lombard Street. At the bottom of Manfull street, just visible on the right, is the Manfull Street Mission Hall. All these buildings came down during the 1960s. This particular photograph is taken from the Picture the Past website. Click here to be taken their version of the photograph.

To help with orientation we have provided a section of an O.S. map with the Head Street/Manfull Street section of road highlighted in pink.

This photograph taken in the late 1950s shows part of the block of terrace housing on the eastern side of Manfull Street. It also allows us a better view of the entrance to the Manfull Street Mission Hall. The properties on Lombard Street lie off to the left of the photograph.

This advert for a Jumble Sale, to held at the Manfull Street Mission hall, is taken from the Lenton Parish magazine for November 1955.

This photograph, probably taken in the 1920s, shows members of the Manfull Street Mission at a May Day event. It is unlikely that the building in the background is that of the Lenton mission.

Taken on May Day 1930 by Ada Marriott this photograph shows members of a concert party from the Manfull Street Mission. Again the actual location of this photograph is unclear.
