Factory Trails: Leicester’s Former Knitting Industry

This short walk in the city centre passes former industrial buildings associated with Leicester’s textile industry. Most date from the 19th and 20th centuries but there is also an earlier example. We pass some well-known names from Leicester’s industrial hay-day who provided employment and brought wealth to the city.

This route includes steps.
