To the north is Spinney Hills , though there is no clear boundary between the two areas, and Spinney Hills which extends northwards to Humberstone Road is often considered to be part of Highfields. The neighbourhood is within walking distance of the city centre of Leicester and offers many amenities for religious, social, cultural and commercial activities.
The area was developed between the late 19th century and the start of the First World War , and contains many fine Victorian townhouses now usually subdivided into flats , as well as areas of redbrick terraced housing. There are modern council estates and tower blocks to the east of Leicester railway station , built during the s on the site of cleared slums, but for the most part the area consists of privately owned and rented property, with some housing association properties.
Many of the area's properties are rented by students of the nearby University of Leicester. The city's workhouse , later Hillcrest Hospital, was formerly situated in the area, on the site now occupied by Moat Community College. This conservation area originally had an area of approximately The boundaries of the conservation area were reassessed in , and it was reduced to approximately As with many inner-city areas in the United Kingdom, Highfields and its residents have often suffered from economic and other forms of social disadvantage.
For this reason, Highfields has in the past been an area associated with crime - it was known even prior to the Second World War as the city's red light district. However this is no longer the case. Although the area still suffers from many social problems, in recent years some of the establishments associated with criminal activity have been closed.
Police activity within the area, often supported by local residents' groups, has led to a number of drug busts. Whether this activity will lead to a significant reduction in crime and anti-social behaviour in the area has yet to be seen. For many years, Highfields has been an extremely multicultural area, with a large ethnic minority , and rapidly evolving population, traditionally being an area occupied by recent immigrants to the city, as well as students from the nearby University of Leicester.
The area has played host to numerous waves of migration to Leicester and subsequent generations, notably including Indian , Jewish , Irish , Polish , Somali , Pakistani , and Caribbean populations, who have contributed significantly to the area's character and rich cultural diversity. Recently the area has seen a large growth in immigrants from Eastern Europe.
Highfields contains Leicester's synagogue , an African-Caribbean Centre, various Christian churches and many mosques , madrassas and Islamic community centres. The annual Leicester Caribbean Carnival traditionally parades through Highfields to the city centre and back again, terminating at nearby Victoria Park.
After funding and logistical difficulties causing the event to be cancelled in , the Carnival has now been reinstated to Leicester's cultural calendar. Highfields is bounded by London Road and Evington Road meaning that it has a large amount of amenities on its doorstep.
Notably this includes the railway station , many Mosques the biggest includes a leisure centre within its grounds , Churches, Temples, a modern health centre, nurseries, schools, local shops, restaurants, community centres and banks. The area also has a public library which is located on Melbourne Road.
Highfield Street is particularly notable for having a high concentration of restaurants in a relatively small area. The area is also notable for having a large number of well developed community institutions which represent the whole community and sections of it. The area is policed by the Leicestershire Constabulary. The Spinney Hill Park area is divided into a number of neighbourhood beats.
As a part of the city of Leicester the area is governed by Leicester City Council. The Highfields area is represented by the Spinney Hills and Stoneygate wards. The area is part of the Leicester South constituency. In the early nineteenth century, Highfields was a rural area lying outside of the city of Leicester. The layout and width of Mill Hill Lane still survives much in the form that it took in the s, although the housing was not built until the s.
Prebend Street and Saxby Street also formed two of these lanes that led from London Road to farms although both of these roads have been widened since.
Veronica Avluv RetiredThe s saw the beginnings of the development of the area as a residential district. By this time there were already a few large villas on the London Road e. The Collegiate School on College Street was built in By the s, although much of the area east of London Road was still open fields, a large house Highfields House had been built and the area between Highfield Street and Mill Hill Lane had been developed Maps 3 and 4.
Houses facing London Road were mainly built between the mids and the late s and most still remain, although all have been converted to commercial uses. Substantial houses continued to be built as the area expanded southwards until the s. Places of worship were also built to cater for the growing population. The building was designed by the renowned architect George Edmund Street who was also responsible for the Courts of Justice in London.
By the s, land prices were high and small residential enclaves such as Woodbine and Gordon Avenues were built in with only footpath access to make the maximum profitable use of the land. These pedestrian enclaves give the area a unique feel. However, the development of Stoneygate began to attract the middle classes away from Highfields and demand for larger houses declined.
Development was completed by the construction of smaller terraced houses on Churchill, Connaught and Hamilton Streets — In , the respected local architect Arthur Wakerley designed the Highfield Street synagogue. This place of worship served a newly established Jewish community that was beginning to settle in the area.
Since completion of the Victorian suburb, there has been no wholesale redevelopment of the area and so much of it still looks as it would have done in the nineteenth century. The main changes have been the loss of front gardens on the west side of London Road and most of those on the east side for highway use and the wholesale conversion of buildings on both sides of London Road into shops and offices.
The s and s saw some continued development and redevelopment in the area. On Nelson Street offices and businesses were built while new shops and offices were built on London Road in the Art-deco style in Most of the original houses between Conduit Street and Prebend Street, including the Congregational chapel, gave way to 3 and 4 storey offices and showrooms between the s and s.
