Wood Gate

 

 

Wood Gate – 1884 Town Plan

 

Thomas owned three properties on Wood Gate[1], and probably occupied the space next to the original Police Court, close to his original factory on High Street. In 1894, he unsuccessfully sought planning permission to build a wooden stable at the back of No. 72 Wood Gate[2], which was subsequently occupied by the single storey extension to Loughborough Magistrates Court[3]. The other two properties were no doubt adjacent to No. 72 and may have provided an alternative access to his High Street factory.
