A couple of doors up Ducie Grove from the Robin Hood was the Park Inn. It is shown here in 1972 as a Wilsons house - the year it closed due to University expansion  - looking down towards Oxford Road with the Holy Name church in the background. This was when Ducie Grove used to run due north to meet up with Oxford Road, and when Devas Street was named Ducie Street. The former location of the old Park pub is in the car park behind Big Hands.
