Leicester Central Station

Leicester Central Station

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L2052. Vehicular access to Leicester Central's parcels offices was via a pair of wrought iron gates, located to the left of the station frontage on Great Central Street. Above the gates stood this fabulous piece of terracotta moulding which read 'GREAT CENTRAL RAILWAY' curving around the top. The centre of the tile work features some ornamental scroll work, while the words 'PARCELS OFFICES' ran across the bottom. This photograph was taken in February 1977, but the gateway still stands today in 2003.
