Build­ings in their for­mer glory

Loughborough Echo - - LOOKING BACK -

LOOK­ING BACK asked read­ers a few weeks ago if they had any other pho­tos of the Tu­dor Man­sions in Woodgate af­ter newly un­cov­ered pho­tos from Mary Sills shed some light on the de­mo­li­tion of the build­ings.

Echo re­porter Liam Cole­man dis­cov­ered the pho­tos as we were mov­ing of­fice, but in a fine co­in­ci­dence it turned out that it was 25 years since the build­ings were de­mol­ished.

Now reg­u­lar Look­ing Backer Mike Jones has sent in some pho­tos of the build­ings in all their for­mer glory.

Mike said that dur­ing re­search he had found ref­er­ence to John Paget in 1837.

He said: “This is in­ter­est­ing, as the Paget fam­ily oc­cu­pied South­fields House, now the Coun­cil Of­fices, which are just on the op­po­site side of South­fields Road to what was the back of Tu­dor Man­sions.”

He said: “Also could there be any con­nec­tion to Vic­to­ria’s ac­ces­sion to the throne in that year?”

Mike also said that the partly de­mol­ished en­trance pic­tured in Look­ing Back a few weeks ago is ac­tu­ally the for­mer front en­trance to Tu­dor Man­sions.
