Gabled frontage of Leicester Central Station

Gabled frontage of Leicester Central Station

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L1739. One of the nine handsome gables that decorated the facade of Leicester Central Station, photographed in October 1957. These distinctive features, along with the station's clock tower, were later demolished by British Railways and replaced with a brick wall. Although the date plaque reads 1898, work on the station continued until the Line's opening in March 1899.
