Scope and content

Contains letters from P. Morley Horder to Bernard Lord Manning about plans to rebuild the corner of New Square (No. 35) to conform to the new building line suggested by the widening of the corner. He felt that it was essential to design the corner in keeping with the existing line of buildings. He comments on a plan submitted by the Land Agents J. Carter & Sons and puts forward his own plans. The file also contains a draft head lease dated 1927 with Mr H. Woodley; a printed and detailed specification of work including plans (October 1927) and a list of building contractors and estimates. Although Morley Horder favoured Messrs Rattee and Kett the College selected H. W. Hunt as his was the cheapest quote
