My grandma who recently passed away was born in Leicester, I have family who still live there. I have places I long to see, from doing the family tree I know the church where family were christened, confirmed, married and buried. I know the street my great great grandfather worked as apprentice to a butcher.
Even without the personal connection it has a rich history and is well worth a visit in its own right. It is also now the final resting place of King Richard III although I personally don’t think much to the monument they are putting up for his tomb but that is my personal taste.
I ask myself why I have never gone but the truth is you always think there will be a tomorrow, I have been reminded though by my recent loss that time does not stand still, this is one location I intend to make a reality sooner rather than later.
