TL8464 : West Suffolk College from across the street

taken 7 years ago, near to Bury st Edmunds, Suffolk, Great Britain

West Suffolk College from across the street
West Suffolk College from across the street
It was recently announced that the college would like to demolish these 1960s buildings and rebuild, as they are so old that they are no longer fit for purpose. What does that say about the many establishments operating from Victorian buildings, and even more so the colleges in Cambridge and Oxford?
The building has now vanished behind a wall of scaffolding and netting.

The College certainly does its part to support Bury in Bloom.
The large stone near the planter is the so-called plague stone. This appears to be a part of a looted pillar from the abbey and was reputedly used as a wash basin for travellers' coins during the Black Death.
