I’m a little bit late posting, went out for a few beers with some old friends last night, didn’t get back home until 12.45am.
Anyway here’s my contribution to Norm 2.0’s excellent “Thursday Doors” blog.
The weather on Tuesday was really good, so I set off for a walk to town on a different route to the one I normally take. I wanted to photograph some Georgian doors near to Leicester Prison ! (fondly known as Leicester Castle)
Leicester De Montfort Hall
Before heading to the prison area I stopped off at De Montfort Hall, the flowers in the grounds looked really good considering the bad weather we have had over the last few weeks. I’ve seen some great bands at this venue over the years, Pink Floyd, Captain Beefheart, Eric Clapton and Kraftwerk to name just a few.
This place is being refurbished so I was glad I got this shot.
This used to be the Norwich Union Insurance offices, it’s now been refurbished and turned into apartments.
Heading towards the prison area I spotted this rather nice plaque.
There seemed to be a huge difference in the condition of the properties in this area.
And To Finish With
I’m sure I read somewhere that this building used to originally be a Harmonium manufactures premises, but I can’t find the information so I could be completely wrong.
