Woodgate, Frog Island

A Memory of Leicester

During the war my grandparents moved from Great Yarmouth to Leicester, my grandmother worked at Freres biscuit factory in Woodgate, my father went to Slater Street School and they lived in Henry Street. It was a cul-de-sac leading on to Central Street Railway Station. Can anybody tell me just out of interest if any of these places are still there today? I also remember my grandfather telling there was a pub called the Ship. It led into Warrington Street.
