Time travellers will need an old map to overlay on a modern map., 21 May 2014
I'm still reading this book, so far it's really bringing back memories of a, mostly, vanished city. If you don't know Leicester and want to know more of it's history, this book will help. Realistically though, how many locals know what a cank is or where to find one? Cank Street is a bit of a clue! It's the city well, now marked by a cross on the wall and a sign on the wall. Butt Close Lane is also fully explained, lost churches located and long gone streets well described. The writing style is readily accessible, some illustrations would be useful but can't have everything!
