The History
Designed by Julius Bradley and opened in 1935 to replace a Victorian Post Office close-by on Granby Street. It also acted as a sorting office for Central Leicester and Central suburbs. It closed in 2007 with most services going to WH Smiths on Granby Street and parcel collection going to an office on Campbell Street. In 2012 Leicester City Council purchased the property with the plan to use it as Customer Service Centre, to replace the offices on Wleford Road, but this idea has fallen flat on it’s face. It is now up for sale on a lowered price with the Council reeling over a £30k a year cost of keeping the building. In May 2013 there was talk of student accommodation, which appears to have also fallen through.

The Explore
Visited with KM Punk one evening after we discovered that another site was a no go so we decided to hit this place and it did not disappoint!
