Thank you Yorrick this was an amazing place and experience, that is also
very beautiful in its own way : )
also explored with The Shepshed Diamond Back.

History

The Counting House dates back to the late 1890's and was the cattle markets
refreshment room, it is also a grade two listed building.
Leicester cattle market opened in 1872 and closed in 1988, the architect for the building
itself was John Breedon Everard. He designed it as a single storey building made from
red bricks, along with decorative iron cresting's and arch doorways there was a lot of
attention to detail, with the clock tower in the centre.

Unfortunately I couldn't find information on the clock itself , even after a lot
of research. I think its fair to say this is one amazing and historical clock,
and I am thrilled I got the chance to go up there and see it.

An old photo to really appreciate the historical qualities of this Clock, that has defiantly
stood the test of time.

Once again moved from industrial as I didn't think it really belonged in there...

I asked to go up there about ten years ago and I got a point blank "No", the guy must like pleasing the ladies!
