DescriptionPhoto taken from a high grassy bank looking down on various university buildings. There is a muddy track/ road after the grassy bank. On the left on the other side of the road is a pile of wooden pallets and planks before a space/ gap where an offshoot of the road branches down the hill. There is also a short section of scaffolding with a sign that has LONGLEY printed on it. There are mounds of earth, bricks and rubble piled up on the nearside bank. On the right, on the far side of the road are some tall buildings with many levels, the first of which has scaffolding around it. There are two site workers atop the scaffolding and another worker on the road below. On the right of the road is another building still under construction which has some of the internal walls/ divisions in place and a man is working inside this area. There is a bank which drops down behind the scaffolded building and down that bank are some white wooden temporary huts/ cabins. Behind these on the right are more university buildings which lead down to the field area where a short hedegrow runs between the near and far side.
