Always followed the Great Central Railway since i was a kid, and always knew the that the dirty poorly maintained building in the dead area of Leicester was the old Great central station. I though id share a few pics i took in July 2018 just after the site was cleared to make way for its much needed regeneration.

Charred ceiling on ground floor. it was thought that this was caused by a woodworker who used to burn his scraps within the property.

walls have been ripped out but note the detailing still present.
