Melford House was lived in 1901 and 1911 by Frederic Foster, architect who amongst other things designed Leicester Causeway School, Cheylesmore School and Centaur Road. Edited by member, 14th Jun 2014 10:18 pm

Melford House. Back on this subject, are there any former residents or staff out there that can recount stories. Has anyone any pictures of the house at any point in its history particularly in the years it was a hotel. Bill Aston was a director, as was Paul Anthony Fawkes, anyone know him, he lived in Poitiers Road or had an office there at no 52. Information on this subject seems hard to come by.

Question

My late father in law stayed at the Melford in the late 1970's, for a year or two, in a room very similar to the one in the photo. He was comfortable there going next door to the Hylands for his liquid sustenance. Unfortunatly at one time he became friendly with two men there who it seems gave him a mickey finn. He collapsed and was in hospital for a time. In 1980 he died whilst still at the Melford and unfortunately all his belonging were lost. My wife was left without any momentos of him.
