Built in 1390 (yes 1390) for the Corpus Christie Guild, Leicester Guildhall has been in almost constant use. In 1584 the Leicester Corporation bought the property for 25 15s 4d! In 1632 the Town Library was moved into the East Wing of the Guildhall from St Martin' s Church. It is the third oldest public library in the country. At about the same time the ground floor of the West Wing was refurbished as the Mayor's Parlour. The Great Hall was often used as a courtroom and a jury Room was created above the Mayor's Parlour. The Guildhall was also used regularly for theatrical performances, banquets and civic events.

Clare (my lovely wife) and I have spent a long weekend in Leicester having a well earned break, so haven't been about much on the site but I will catch up tomorrow when I'm home, but I'd like to say a huge thank you to Walter for his UA and also JackAllTog for his Guest Editors award... I'm really grateful

Wonderful old building - can't imagine much of the stuff built today still being around in 600+ years!
