The Trent Building, the formal centre piece of the University of Nottingham ‘University Park Campus’. Constructed between 1922 and 1928 and very typical of the period. Reminiscent of the Ulster Museum and some of the London town halls - like Hackney. A classical building in Portland stone with an elegant and formal relationship to the boating lake below. The narrow clock tower, however, bringing a strong vertical emphasis, marks the building out as early 20th century. A pleasant place to visit.
