Leafy Lenton
A spring-morning view through a zoom lens up Lenton Boulevard, towards Derby Road. Castle Boulevard, Lenton Boulevard, Radford Boulevard and Gregory Boulevard, laid out in the 1880s, formed a big loop round the western side of the city, an early form of inner-ring road leading from the foot of Castle Rock to Mansfield Road.

According to his sister Lois, speaking in 1981, the Great War air ace Albert Ball VC (1896-1917) was born at No 32, in the distance on the right, but this is not confirmed by other sources - and there is no plaque. The Ball family later moved to a grand house in The Park Estate - see SK5639 : Sedgeley House, Lenton Road, The Park.
