    The Allen family were a big name in the brewery trade in Leicester. in 1870 John Allen was was a wine & spirit merchant in hallowtree Gate and Thomas Allen was an innkeeper in redcross Street. In 1875 southam & Allen were mineral water manufacturers and Allen & Co were wine and spirit merchants in humberstone Gate.
    The business was taken over by Praeds in 1951 and the premises sold for £38,000. The bottling plant buildings were later used as an antiques centre, before finally closing down a few years back.

    The site had a nice feel to it, going from old to slightly more modern in places. The basement is huge here! I can't help feel like i missed some of the basement out. A crazy number of pigeons here too! Visited with RichPDG. Good explore :thumb
