Leicester audio trail

An audio trail from Leicester's Town Hall to the Clocktower

The following sound files take you from Town Hall Square to the Clocktower, round the back of Highcross and back to the Clocktower via Silver Street. The voices are taken from the collections of the East Midlands Oral History Archive. A commentary by radio Leicester's Stephen Butt puts the clips into context and tells you who is talking.

  • These clips are also available at the Empedia website, which enables you to follow the trail on your mobile phone or similar device.
  • You can also listen to them on EMOHA's You Tube channel where you can also see pictures of the places being described.
  • See a map of the route (PDF, 804kb) with photos of where each track is.
