A to Z of Leicester: N is for...

New Walk

This traffic-free lane leads right into the centre of the city. It was created in 1785 and became a desirable place to both live and walk. Halfway down is New Walk museum featuring my childhood favourites: dinosaurs and Egyptian mummies.

A quadragintal is a blog of exactly 40 words.

two huge cannons outside when I was a kid


  1. I've walked the New Walk on numerous occasions. Love the dinosaurs too! We went to the New Walk museum on a school trip when I was at primary school :)

  2. Loved the pics, and the last sentence of your post. Great going!

  3. Dinosaurs, Egyptian mummies ànd cannons ... that's almost too good to be true! :-)

  4. If I remember rightly this museum is where we used to walk to in the break during the Yom Kippur services?
    Gosh Ros, this A - Z brings backs ancient memories.

  5. Wonderful shot post for N in A2Z challenge.
