Yes Denise, it was discussed quite some time ago now, can't believe it's two years though (!), and it had been"missing" for a fair amount of time even then! Guess it's very shiny by now....

Here is a pic of it and a Waterstones sign so Waterstone should know where it is.

Notice the little kettle i missing in this pic

Correct. Waterstones WILL only be trading from the ground floor, regardless of planning permission above the store.

IIRC the kettle is outside the copper kettle at the bottom of Aylestone Hill.

What, the shop that's now Legge's?

I thought there was some covenant on the Waterstone's building that meant the kettle had to be there for x number of hundred years?

Turn of the century? Mum worked at both old halfrauds (80/90s) before relocation to Holmer Trading Est.

the kettle was there then outside bait room window. Everyone owned an Apollo bike then, unless you were super rich and could afford a Carrera or got staff discount!!
