THE NEWARKE (South Side)
Arches in basement of De Montfort University, Hawthorn Building

(Formerly listed as Arches in basement of Leicester Polytechnic, Hawthorn Building)


Two arches in basement of large late C19 and C20 building. The arches are believed to be the surviving ruins of the Church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, founded in 1353 by Henry, Earl of Lancaster, which was situated opposite the Hospital of the Honour of God and the Glorious Virgin, later known as Trinity Hospital. They consist of two small double-chamfered pointed arches of unequal width, with stone rubble infill.
