The Red House in the centre of the town is under threat!

The iconic building adjacent to the Clock Tower is by far the oldest building in the town, pre-dating Coalville by some 60 odd years dating to the mid 1700s. It stood originally surrounded by fields and has watched Coalville grow around it. As such it is an essential part of the town's heritage and should be preserved not removed.
For a full appraisal of the building's importance please download and read this document:
