Belgrave Hall, Belgrave Village, Leicester
This Grade II* listed Georgian house was built between 1709-13 for Edmund Cradock (sic), a hosiery merchant and part of the local “nouveau riche” fraternity. Many individuals and families have owned it since then, one of the more recent being Thomas Morley, a Leicester hosiery manufacturer, who sold it to Leicester Corporation in 1936 for £10,500. This was at the same time as the Corporation acquired Belgrave House, situated obliquely opposite. The road in front of both of these properties was known as “The Gravel” until two owners of Belgrave Hall, the Ellis sisters, arranged to have it re-named “Church Road” in 1889. From 1936 onwards “The Hall” was a C18th history-orientated museum whose gardens were opened to the public. The hall is now owned by Leicester City Council and it functions solely as a functions venue, although the grounds are regularly open to the public. The C13th St Peter's Church is located amongst the trees in the distance.
