Group Walks: Factory Trails – Leicester’s Former Knitting Industry

Saturday 9 October at 11am

Starting from Leicester Cathedral Gardens off Peacock Lane / St Martins.

Around 90 minutes, steady pace

We delve again into Leicester’s industrial past. This time we take in some of the large companies associated with Leicester’s textile industry who enjoyed success well into the 20th century. We pass some well-known names from Leicester’s industrial hay-day who provided employment and brought wealth to the city. A repeat of the walk presented in July, for those that missed it.
