St. Michael's Church: Scott Street, Knighton, Leicester

Memorial: St. Michael's Church: Scott Street, Knighton, Leicester

St Michael and All Angels Church which was designed by Everard & Pick was built in 1897. After an unsuccessful appeal for £500,000 to convert the building to a Centre for Performing Arts it was demolished in 1996. The church bells which were made by Taylors of Loughborough, makers of the Carillion bells, were sent to a church in Johannesburg.
