Those of you who know Bloomsbury probably imagine I have a lovely view across one of the squares from my office window. Until recently, you would be right! UCL are building a new student hub (everything is a ‘hub’ these days) and had to have somewhere to house the workers. The solution? … a two storey stack of portacabins in a tunnel over the pavement.
Just to add to my joy, the staircase between levels is just by my window, so they have covered it in plastic…
It is scheduled to be like this until December 2018. No wonder I prefer being out surveying. Jarrod Burks, who many of you will remember from the course, was out surveying the other day.
Seems a bit too extreme for my liking!
You may wonder what this tale of woe has to do with geophysics and CAGG? UCL have put up a nice set of panels on the hoardings to advertise what the Institute does and to make the place slightly more inviting. I was really pleased to see…
Yay, fame at last! Sadly, the only caption near the image of our survey doesn’t mention CAGG, Verulamium or geophysics.
Oh well, never mind. Perhaps I should find a plastic holder for our CAGG postcards and leave a few there for the curious.
Local Hertfordians maybe interested to see the article on Batford in this week’s Herts Advertiser and compare that to my posting about the survey.
Merry Christmas everybody.
