Leicester Greyfriars Heritage Initiative - Restoration - New Street Properties

10, 12 and 14 New St

10, 12 and 14 New Street are fine examples of Georgian architecture and are Grade II listed. They were identified early in the scheme as priority projects.

The buildings had been in use by a local solicitor’s firm, Freer Bouskell for more than 200 years.

The buildings were vacant and in a poor state of repair, requiring roof works, lead repair and window restoration. Hazelton Homes Ltd bought the properties for conversion into residential use.

A grant of £86k was agreed to restore the facades. The works took place during Spring and Summer 2016. The main contractor was SP&AJ.

The historic Cank Street water pump was relocated to outside of 14 New St and the case remains in the basement.

Today the buildings house 16 residents. Take a look inside the building as it looks today.

9-13 New Street

A grant of £45,950 was awarded for comprehensive façade improvements to this group of properties. Works included refurbishment of original timber windows, installation of new timber windows where these were missing, re-dressing of all lead flashings and render repairs.

Not only was the terrace in better condition as a result, but of more comprehensively matching features throughout, highlighting the group value of these properties and complementing its intrinsic architectural merit.

These works have significantly improved the street scene and complement extensive landscaping and public realm works that transformed the street.
