Vanished Leicester: St Nicholas Street

Copyright © Dennis Calow
Writing of the Leicester parish of St Nicholas in 1958, the Victoria County History for Leicestershire said:
The main thoroughfare of the parish is St. Nicholas Street, which joins High Street and Applegate Street and leads to the West Bridge.
The photograph above show St Nicholas Street in 1962.

Today it has vanished, lost somewhere under the road system of St Nicholas Circle.
