Leicester: A totally uninteresting Midlands city?
Not a bit of it. as this talk by Chris Mathews and Adrian Jones from last November's conference 'Planning Leicester: Town planning and the historic environment since the 1960s' shows.
The city has lots of interesting 20th-century architecture, some of which has featured on this blog.
I played many chess games in the City Hall on Charles Street when it was home to the Willie Thorne Snooker Centre. It was a cut above the schools or church halls where matches usually took place.
I have already posted one by the archaeologist Matthew Morris on 'The importance of the archaeology and standing buildings of Leicester'.
