I am starting this blog to share with anyone who is interested, the fascinating history of Leicester’s Clarendon Park as I discover it myself. I am a former museum curator and a local and family historian of seventeen years experience, currently enjoying setting up my own history research service. I moved to Clarendon Park five years ago and in that time have been researching the history of its buildings, businesses and people. It is a vibrant area today and, judging from the information I have already uncovered, has always been full of – ahem – character. But more about that in the posts to come. In the meantime, thanks for looking and please feel free to contact me with any questions about Clarendon Park and I will do my best to help. Regards, Elizabeth.
