Leicester Hebrew Congregation, Highfield Street, Leicester - Leicester, City of (UA)

Synagogue and schoolrooms by A Wakerley, 1897-8 and 1901 with C20 fire escape. Tower dome roof coverings were defective and the fire escape has suffered considerable movement. Subsoil is clay and there is a large tree close by. A grant for investigations and urgent repairs to the fire escape, tower and domed roof was awarded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund in March 2012. Tower and roof repairs were completed in summer 2014. The Stage 2 National Lottery Heritage Fund project is underway for alterations to the former school rooms.
