Market Harborough
U3A Millennium Tapestry

This impressive Victorian red-brick building was built in 1889 as a new corset factory for R. & WH. Symington. Now it houses the offices and Council Chamber of Harborough District Council, the Pen Lloyd Library, the Harborough Museum and the Tourist Information Office.

The Harborough District Council provides local services to some 75,000 residents living in 230 square miles of south-east Leicestershire. Shown is the main entrance in Adam & Eve Street, the large planters represent Harborough in Bloom and, at the top, the Council logo.
