Not certain of exact date, but this was a police house. Albert had moved out by the time of the census in 1901 when he was recorded as living with his family at 26 Clarence Road, Hinckley. The house adjoined the police station. It was bought from the police force in the 1950's by James William Bell who was still resident there at the age of 83 in 2006. (Eric and Anne Percival met him whilst observing the house and were invited in for a cup of tea.) Apparently the council have been trying to get him to move out so's they could sell the properties to developers for demolition.
