redirecting with .htm access file problem?

Hi there

I've been spending hours trying to implememt a 301 redirect for 3 of my old pages. I realised they had gaps in their titles, so put up new pages without gaps and need the old pages to redirect to the new.

I have uploaded a .htaccess file to the same folder my index file is in, with the following format of code:

Redirect 301 public_html/Widget Page.html [Mysite.co.uk...]

However the redirect is still not working. My host verified a 301 should work ok.

Does anyone have any tips where i could be going wrong?
Would the original gap be causing an issue?
Does the above code look correct?
Is there another code format i could choose?

Thanks for any assistance in this matter , im stumped...
