500 London Road, Derby
Aka Hartley House. Definitely of some architectural interest, and historical interest in terms of its original function. Locally listed by Derby City Council, which describes it thus: "former London Midland and Scottish Railway Research building, designed in a Modern style by company architect Harold John Connal of Derby and constructed in 1935 ... this was the pioneer building in the extensive railway research complex on the east side of London Road. It was opened in 1935 by Lord Rutherford, physicist and chemist and a pioneer in atomic nuclear work. Used primarily as chemistry labs for the railway."
