    The oldest part of the site was built around 1904 as the Lero power station for the city tramways, this closed in 1938 and was taken over by the city education committee. After the war they converted the building to house the Leicester College of Technology. It later became Charles Keene College until 1999 when they merged with Southfields college, becoming Leicester College (Abbey Park Campus). In January 2009 the Abbey Park campus moved into a new building on the site of the old car park. We had been keeping an eye on the place since, but the p.i.r's dotted all over the place stopped the place being explored. Looking through windows it could always be seen the place was mint and still full of stuff, even down to cars in the mechanics workshops. One day I spotted that demolition had started to we were straight down there, though unfortunately most of the stuff had been cleared out. Still interesting though as although not based here, I used to visit the place for exams etc when I was a student at Leicester College.
