I agree with Mike, Aston Uni campus is quietly absorbing everything in it's locality. Look how much it has swallowed up since it's humble beginning as a technical college. In 1966 when it became a university you could walk around the whole college in about five minutes I don't think you could do it that fast in a car now.

i think they did look at building it on the east side until the plans for the new HS2 took priority

Absolutely right Mike but My point is its not in the right place, its a dammed eysore and that's before they open it.

I suppose they thought it was helpful to have it near to the Museum & Art Gallery as that can be an educational resource for schools and others.

With me it's not so much the location but more the style of the building. If I had been on the planning team I would have been asking why Baskerville House could not have been extended in the same architectural style as the main building?

Is Baskerville House part of the new library?

If I knew what I meant myself then I would most probably be able to explain myself.

You'll get no argument from me on that statement either.
