Happy New Year!
Winter Degrees.

I graduated in early December. I’ve been away from Bath for a year and a half but have returned variously. It was great to come back for graduation and meet with some classmates and go through the very elaborate ceremony. Bath Uni kindly posted these photos on their website but I’ll return with my own shortly.

After a prolonged dissertation submission, I finally finished my long-winded titled work: “A Sympathetic Planning Hierarchy for Redundant Churches: A Comparison of Continued Use and Adaptive Reuse in Denmark, England, and The United States of America” (2008).
Winter Degrees.
The ceremony was great and I won the Oculus Prize for overall best coursework and dissertation, presented by Peter Norris, chairman of Oculus Building Consultancy, and the RIBA-SW Prize to boot! (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors-Southwest Region Prize). Both came as a surprise and I am very fortunate for the opportunity.

  3. Did you ever find out any more about Sarah Louise Gray, whose memorial stone I came across yesterday on The Cotswold Way ? I can’t find anything else about her. Curious how un-curious most passers-by are. Cheers!

    • I have also been trying to find out about her but nothing.
      I walk past the stone 2-3 times a week and have become very curious as to who she was and why she died.

      • Sarah was riding her horse when she collapsed and died from an undiagnosed heart condition 3 weeks before her 18th birthday. She was a great friend and still missed deeply 15 years on. I hope this helps.
