The Magazine, Leicester

Leicester Civic Society is delighted to read of the money being invested in public buildings announced by the City Council.

In particular we are encouraged by the £210,000 to be spent on restoration works to preserve the Magazine building, which is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and the £44,000 to preserve the ruins of Cavendish House in Abbey Park, which is also a Scheduled Ancient Monument. We look forward to seeing the results.

“Some of the improvements at schools will be major works, such a renewing heating systems or electrical safety work, while others will involve smaller repairs or replacement works to ensure our schools are at the best.

“Additionally by improving our parks, heritage buildings, libraries and sports centres, we are securing their future as safe, welcoming public buildings for everyone to use.

“Some of these, such as the Magazine and Cavendish House, are among the city’s oldest buildings and we’ve worked with Historic England on work to ensure they are preserved for future generations.”
