University of Leicester
Richard and David Attenborough’s father, Frederick, was Principal for over 20 years. The boys lived in College House, growing up on campus. Much later I was a student there. I got a History degree and post-graduate teaching certificate. Happy times!
The Engineering Building was designed by
James Stirling and James Gowan. It is included in a list of
the 50 most inspiring buildings in Britain.
My History tutorials were on the 16th floor of the Attenborough
reached by a constantly moving paternoster. Scary!
