SU1484 : The David Murray John tower

taken 1 year ago, near to Swindon, Great Britain

The David Murray John tower
The David Murray John tower
The name of this tower of offices and council flats honours the last town clerk to the county borough of Swindon, from 1937-1974. He was the force behind Swindon's successful application for expansion under the Town Development Act 1952 and the industrial diversification of a town previously dominated by the railway works. This building, completed in 1976, was also his idea. Designed by Douglas Stephen and Partners, it is unrivalled on the skyline of Swindon and in my view thoroughly deserves to be.
