Former contractors office for MSLR on Talbot Lane, Leicester

Former contractors office for MSLR on Talbot Lane, Leicester

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L3305. The temporary site office for the construction of Contract No. 2 (East Leake to Aylestone) was located in this building on Talbot Lane in Leicester. The office would have been occupied by the contractor's representative and the Manchester, Sheffield & Lincolnshire Railway engineer, George Chalcraft, who would have overseen the work. The characteristic window shutters (as seen in S. W. A. Newton's photograph of the building - L1212), have been removed at some point. The date of this photograph is 21st October, 2003.
