Ashburton building (Haywood building)

This sub-series focusses on the Ashburton building, formerly the Haywood building.
Colonel Thomas Haywood, Chairman of the Trustees, laid the foundation stone of a new building, which was to bear his name, on 13th June 1964. The architects of this new academic building were F.J. Lenton & Partners. It came to use in September 1965 and was officially opened by Group Captain Douglas Bader. It housed the Geography and Modern Languages Departments. It comprised nine classrooms and the Jerwood Hall in the basement, which was equipped as a lecture hall, cinema and television room. In 1978, a new extension to the Haywood Building saw the addition of six classrooms and ancillary rooms to the Modern Languages, Geography and Audio Visual Aids Departments. The Haywood building on Church Street was extended in 1984. It was renamed 'Ashburton' in 1989 and now houses the Modern Foreign Languages and Classics departments.
