The Gainborough Building, also known as the City of Bath College which specialised in Art, Music and Drama. It was converted from an old hospital and still holds many of the recognisable features. The photography department was the old Morgue and the old admin was turned into the HotBath Gallery. It is now being turned into a hotel to work along side the new Bath Spa which is built on top of the old Roman ruins. This is another local site I've been meaning to cross off the list for a long time because it's where I did my National Diploma in Art&Design. It also holds the best lift in the world-very photogenic. This was a permissioned visit and I must say a big thankyou to the builder who showed me round and filled me in on lots of local history about the building. Budice was due to come with me but was feeling a bit poorly so these photos are on behalf of him too:) Anyway, some piccies.....
