Market Harborough
U3A Millennium Tapestry

51 High Street

This Georgian house has a Victorian bowed facade of 1891. It has been a Solicitor's office for many years. It is known for the wonderful wisteria covering the front of the building. It shares with its neighbours some of the 19lh century in-filling of houses and workshops behind the High Street. This helped to swell the population of Harborough from 1,704 in 1811 to 2,488 in 1841 without much expansion beyond its mediaeval boundaries.
