Description

Description

The building is the former Public Record Office built from 1850 onwards and incorporates many of the original features from that period.

The Round Room and Weston Room are almost as original and two cells which were used to house the records remain. The building is a mix of old and new and incorporates all the usual modern university library requirements, as well as cafe etc.
