Theo surveys the ruins of the OLD READING ROOM.

The Academical Gnomes took over this edifice when they first moved to Wessex at the invitation of Aelfred ye Cake. The building was in a parlous state of repair. Some of the walls were leaning and parts of the roof had fallen in. The Gnomes effected temporary repairs. The Old Reading Room was finally abandoned when the Gnome Uni. moved to Wess Chalkshire in the nineteenth century.

The dome of the University SENATE BUILDING is floodlit to celebrate Dr Hieronymous T. Gnome’s 500th birthday.
It is here that the assorted bigwigs, fuzzywigs, greybeards, longbeards and assorted old farts of the University meet to make important administrative, legal and academic regulations. Hmmmm.

The Dreaming Spires of Oxenhope (Dr. Hieronymous’ alma mater)?

Actually we have no idea where it is, despite there appearing to be a Gnome University undergraduate lurking in the opening of one of the turrets. However, Theo liked the picture. He said it reminded him of the covered Victorian market in Halifax.
