NEW FA­CIL­I­TIES IN LE­ICES­TER

Canal Boat - - News -

Se­cure moor­ings and wa­ter, with elec­tric­ity to fol­low, have been es­tab­lished at the re­cently re­stored Fri­ars Mill on the River Soar Nav­i­ga­tion in Le­ices­ter. El­san dis­posal should be in­stalled soon a lit­tle fur­ther down­stream. The new moor­ings are only a few yards from the Richard III ex­hi­bi­tion that has been es­tab­lished where his re­mains were dis­cov­ered. City Mayor Peter Soulsby said: “Hav­ing come so close to los­ing such an im­por­tant part of Le­ices­ter’s in­dus­trial her­itage in 2012, when the old fac­tory was nearly de­stroyed by fire, it’s won­der­ful to see the build­ing re­stored to its former glory – and to see boats moored out­side it once again.”
