Street Names of Leicester

[An image showing Street Names of Leicester]I gave a talk on "Street Names of Leicester" recently.

It was an after lunch talk, at Devonshire House, and was for De Montfort Probus Club.

Leicester has a very eccentric collection of street names. Some refer to ancient gates into the Old Town, while others appear to do so, but in fact don`t! Many refer to aspects of Leicester`s very ,ong history.

Among the names discussed and explained were Butt Close Lane; Cheapside; Every Street; Gallowtree Gate; Horsefair Street; and Pocklingtons Walk.

I will be happy to deliver this talk to your own group. Just ask!
