Vanished Leicester: Emmanuel Baptist Church, Leamington Street

Copyright © Dennis Calow
Emmanuel Baptist Church, which was built in 1871, is pictured here in 1978 - the year of its demolition. It seems already to have passed into the hands of commerce.

Leamington Street ran somewhere near the West Bridge but seems to have vanished under the road scheme there.

The Leicester Mercury has a recent article about a Roman Catholic church in the same areas that was also demolished in 1978.

It was torched by arsonists in 1978. It was being used as a scrap metal merchants.
