Tudor Mansions demolished
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?
Or do you know anything more about them?
Maybe you used to work at the former Archie Moss garage, or maybe you have memories of Woodgate that you would like to share with Looking Back readers?
