The Radial Building had long been converted to apartments when Dave gave me a tour of the site, so we stayed clear. William's Building had likewise been converted and curtains twitched as we walked past. But it was the Carew Building, added to the site in 1867 (just after the Chapel), which attracted our attention.

Looking north towards the Glenmore building with Carew Building (Newlyn Ward) to the right. The new tiny building (centre) is apparently an entrance into the old subway tunnels for bats. © Simon Cornwell 2006
