RIP: A.E. Piggott & Sons, Leicester 2

Hand-painted sign on the wall of a warehouse beside a canal

This large canal-side ghostsign has fallen victim to the demolition of its host building in Leicester. More details of the location can be seen on Amy’s photo of the sign on Flickr where it is also noted that it made a cameo in the first Walkers crisps commercial featuring Gary Lineker (0:36 and 0:55 below).

    When boating past this building we always referred to it as THE Leicester Piggott. Sad times.

    • Love that! Thanks for sharing, I wonder if there are any other ghostsign/location puns out there…
