Normam and Underwood

Norman and Underwood is a truly amazing local company with an international reputation.

Founded in 1825, this family run business is world renowned for its sheet lead, produced using traditional sand cast methods used since Roman times.  The lead can be seen on some of the most famous buildings in Britain and abroad including Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral, Hampton Court Palace and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem.

Jon Castleman, who runs the business and is in the 7th generation of the family, showed me how the sheet lead is produced. I felt very proud that we have such an historic and special business here in Leicester.

Parks Pantry takes place every Wednesday from 12-2pm at New Parks Library. Anyone can go along and get a delicious and nutritious meal for only 50p.  It’s run by a group of fantastic volunteers, including Carl Tincknell who invited me along and showed me around.  I would really encourage you to go along and invite your family and friends as it’s a great local initiative.
