Successful sale of historic South Wigston factory

41-43 Canal Street, South Wigston, known locally as the Pigeon Factory, was successfully sold at auction on the 9 October 2018 at the King Power Stadium.

The former hosiery factory is one of the oldest buildings in South Wigston and the auction sale followed intervention by the Council which used compulsory purchase powers to get this long neglected historic building brought back into use.

Oadby & Wigston Borough Council Leader, Cllr John Boyce said: “The Council has worked hard to get the property to the market and following this successful auction sale it is hoped that the new owners will bring forward and deliver proposals to get this historic building back into use as soon as possible.”
