New Walk, Leicester - the opening scenes for book #3 in 'The Borough Boys' series
The beautiful houses and Museum of the New Walk area of Leicester. Originally called Queens Walk, or Ladies Walk, and built as a pleasant walkway from the old Borough, up to the racecourse that predates the current Victoria Park.
The walk follows the route of the old Roman 'Via Devana' which ran from Leicester to London.
