Midland Bank (HSBC) (Leicester)
It was built originally as the Leicestershire Bank by one of Leicester's most prominent architects, Joseph Goddard, in 1874.
This Bank is an extraordinary building, being created in what is known as the Venetian-Gothic style, with French pavilion roofs. It makes a sizeable contribution to Leicester's reputation for superb Victorian architecture.
One of the endearing, but little noticed, features of the building comes from Samuel Barfield, the stonemason who often worked with Goddard. Look for his monsters which crawl about the walls.
