I do like this college's interaction with the canal. It'll help to civilise the area rather than leave it isolated.

It's all offices at the science park.

Hasn't been a sandwich shop since Hudson's & Mortimer's closed down at Holt Court a few years ago (where the Unite the Union HQ will be built).


At the moment you have to walk up to Aston Street or further into town (Corporation Street and beyond).

A bit too early for that I'd reckon MSP, however, given the future vision for the area, its likely to happen eventually. Exciting times.

Thanks for the link PB.

It's interesting to see how the new student building is a landmark (in its basic sense) building now.I would have had no idea where this plot of land is.

Yeah Ell, it sits on top of the Engineering Academy opposite. Can't miss it when walking passed.

& Nacho, no problem, best to keep this thread up to date.
It's also worth checking the Doncaster site too once in a while https://timelapse.regenology.co.uk/api/embedded/6Wx/

I'll look forward to seeing this college built.

I hope that a lot of kids from the immediate local area will get a chance to study here.

I've just noticed that these webcam images above update by themselves on here. So the images above are what the site looks like right now, today, Thursday, the 30th of June, in the year 2016 on the planet Earth
