Morning all. the pub at the castle was a very tiny place with a piano ,in the 60s, I worked at SD Strettons just around the corner, Fridays was the Castle Pub at lunch time. Its a shame all the places with interest are basically going or gone.
I see from reading local paper most of the old hosiery buildings are being knocked down, old pubs and various buildings around Leicester really should be protected, however like all places money talks.
In Wellington NZ, a huge number of old waterfront warehouse have gone, to make way for commercial buildings right on waterfront, that stand empty at weekends. I would love to see the canals around Leicester cleaned up and tow paths all looking smart, living in a old converted mill along side would be great.
