    This former post office opened in 1935 and closed in 2007,
    the building was then bought by Leicester council in 2008 for 1.4 million
    and is now on the market for an estimated £800,000 thats a loss of £600,000
    annual maintenance costs are £30,000.
    The building is in very good condition,
    with alot of original features.
    The roof offers spectacular views, across Leicester.

    visited twice once with K M Punk and then with Lost Explorer

    Typical Council wasting money. Looks a nice place though.

    Can"t beat dark wood in the dark for causing problems when you don"t wanna give yourself away :)

    Leicester Shitty Council also own the Haymarket Theatre, which has also been sat doing fuck all for 8 years eating up our taxes.
