Tu­dor Man­sions de­mol­ished

Loughborough Echo - - LOOKING BACK -

NOT LONG ago whilst hunt­ing through the Echo archives, re­porter Liam Cole­man found that it was 25 years ago to the day that the Tu­dor Man­sions in Woodgate were de­mol­ished.

And now, in a fine stroke of luck as the Echo moved of­fices re­cently, we found a set of photos of the his­toric build­ings as they were be­ing turned to rub­ble.

The photos are be­lieved to have been sent in a while ago in by Echo reader Mary Sills, and the en­ve­lope says they also fea­ture the for­mer Zeno­bia site - the per­fume fac­tory- in Woodgate.

In the orig­i­nal Echo re­port of the pro­posed de­mo­li­tion 25 years ago, it was stated that “im­por­tant features” from the build­ings were to be stored in a safe place by Charn­wood Bor­ough Coun­cil.

The Man­sions made way for what is now the Bee­hive Lane car park. The Archie Moss garage was also on the site.

• Do you have any old photos of the Tu­dor Man­sions?
