    Default The Corah St Margaret's works leicester Part Two


    over the past few months etc I've been back to The Corah works, the decline of the building is shocking, its very sad to see as its one of my favourite hosiery buildings in leicester with such a long history.. i found out yesterday that the building isn't listed as its not complete !! but i might send off another application to get it listed...
    anyway pictures

    i started work for these back in 1986!! which maybe some reason I'm drawn to leicesters hosiery industry

    Some people are like Slinkies. They aren't really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
