HSBC Bank, 31, Granby Street, Leicester - Leicester, City of (UA)

Former HSBC bank, 1872-74 by Joseph Goddard in the French Gothic Revival style. Large banking hall with elaborate timber roof and stained glass. The main building is currently used for worship. Stained glass windows have been repaired and the upper floors converted. The roofs continue to deteriorate and are in need of repair. Urgent repairs were completed on one roof in March 2018 with financial support from Leicester City Council. A National Lottery Heritage Fund grant application for a wider project that would have also included roof repairs has not been successful.
