Leicester - City Centre
A view across Castle Yard (albeit mainly grassed over), i.e. the open area between the Great Hall and the end elevation of the St Mary de Castro church. The yard was used for public executions. The Great Hall was built in around 1150 by Robert de Bossu, 2nd Earl of Leicester and was extensively rebuilt and the roof structure replaced in about 1523. The brick frontage dates from 1695. It was used as a law court until 1992. A plaque affixed to a brick wall near to the car in the image records the fact that John Wesley addressed "a great crowd" here in 1770.
