Entrance to the former Blackfriars Mosaic Chamber

The entrance to the Blackfriars Roman Mosaic chamber at Leicester's Great Central Station, as seen on 19th July, 2002. The mosaic was found during the demolition of houses that were being cleared to make way for the new line and station. To preserve this ancient pavement and to provide access to the public, the chamber was then constructed around it. Now an industrial unit with a roller shutter door, it is hard to believe what the chamber once housed. See on Route Map
