The University of Leicester owes its existence to the generosity of local people who gave their time, money, and energy to support the establishment of a higher education college in Leicester as a memorial to the First World War. This lunchtime guided history walk will tell the story of some of the prominent women who played leading roles in our foundation. Along the way we will pass houses and other landmarks associated with key figures including philanthropist Annie Clephan and scientist and schoolmistress Mary Florence Rich.
