An early water-colour sketch of the University clearly showing the tower and the library building at a right angle. Financial constraints meant the building was never completed as intended by the architect Henry Hare. The outer large quad was completed in the 1960’s.

Bangor University Archives are responsible for the care and storage of the early College Records as well as our Archives Collections and General Collection of Bangor Manuscripts. All of these manuscript collections are bound by one common factor, their relevance to the history, people and topography of North Wales. However, their subject areas are wide ranging and are of national as well as local historical interest.
