    Well this is my first post so go easy on me! Ive seen a couple of reports of this place and decided to check it out first a bit of history taken from wikipedia

    The History
    The company was founded by Nathaniel Corah at the Globe Inn, Silver Street, in Leicester – a building which still survives, and which at that time was closely associated with the city's stockingers.Corah's business model was to buy completed stockings in Leicester, and to sell them elsewhere at a profit.The majority of Corah's sales were in Birmingham, and he maintained a stock room in another public house there.The business soon grew, and its own premises on Union Street in Leicester were purchased in 1824. The company remained at these premises until 1845. In 1830, Corah's three sons – John, Thomas and William – were taken into partnership. The name of the firm became Nathaniel Corah & Sons.

    The explore

    I recognise most of those areas now ;) Looks like you got the Admin Block and server rooms (my favorite bit)

    It's a massive building took us nearly 5 hours last time we were there.
