Hidden Leicester - Beneath Stoneygate Tram Depot
I was given a rare opportunity to explore the disused area beneath the former Leicester Corporation Tramways Edwardian District Tram Depot during their Heritage Open Days event. Hidden below ground level the disused dark and dusty space makes for a spooky atmosphere of cobwebs, dark rooms and shows many echoes of its past as both a tram and bus depot. The area was originally used to repair and service the trams during the depots working life but after having a concrete floor installed has remained untouched for many years before the LTHT took over the lease of the building.
