Quarry House, from Shannon Street
1993. View looking from Shannon Street to the newly built Quarry House in the spring of 1993. This was to be the new headquarters for the Department of Health and Social Security, transferred from London. Designed by Terry Farrell, it also included leisure facilities eg. a swimming pool and squash courts. Today (2010) it is shared by the Department of Health and the Department for Work and Pensions.

When I looked at this building for the first time I thought it was quite ugly, but now that I have seen some of the more recently built monstrosities my thoughts are well it may not be so bad after all.
