    The City of Leicester Municipal Offices by Leonard Barnish and Spencer Silcock, opened on 7th November 1938. The ground floor housed the City of Leicester Electricity Board showrooms, while the upper floors housed offices of the many different departments that ran things in the city. One of the basements was fitted out as a nuclear bunker during the cold war, while another houses a chopped up auditorium complete with dressing rooms. In the 1970's many of the administrative staff were moved to the New Walk Centre, a pair of large and fairly hideous office blocks. The original offices were leased out and used as offices, training centres, bars and pool halls until this year. Now the 1970's offices are crumbling and structually unsound, meaning the council are spending over 10 million on refurbishing, extending, and moving back into the original 1930's offices! I suppose its good that its going to be back doing its original purpose rather than being neglected though :) Visited with MD and a non member.
