Joseph Goddard of Leicester (1839/40-1900)

Joseph Goddard was the most eminent member of a family of architects based in Leicester, and responsible for a variety of that city's buildings - several are noted on the Leicester walk. He trained under his father, Henry Goddard (c.1790-1868), joining the family firm, and then later working independently.

Joseph Goddard tended to work in the Gothic style. In Leicester, he designed the Clock Tower, the Thomas Cook building, the local headquarters of local banks and insurance companies, and the Church of St John. He was succeeded by his son Henry Langton Goddard, also an architect.
