Leicester Central Station

Leicester Central Station

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L2053. In contrast to the ornate frontage on Great Central Street, the rear entrance to Leicester Central Station on Jarvis Street was much less imposing. The nature of the station, being built on top of the viaduct, meant that access to the platforms was achieved via stairs or a lift from ground level. This passage would have led through to the main booking office on the other side of the station. The inventive use of brickwork around the entrance is worth noting in this March 1977 view.
