[In the eighties, the assembly of undergraduates for group photographs in October at the start of their second year became increasingly difficult; after 1986, the grouping of second-year undergraduates for photography was abandoned in favour of individual photographs of undergraduates at the start of their first and second years. An annual montage was formed for students in each year and a hard copy of each montage was archived. The systematic archiving ended in July 2005, by which time all photography had become digitised. Start-of-year photography was continued and the archive remains, with its images unavailable outside the Chemistry Department]


Soccer Hall of Fame

David Parker writes “A celebrated 1986 football team: unbeatable…

Lenny Lauchlan (usually injured), David Parker (midfield genius), Rab Mulvey (prolific centre forward, KW PDRA), Martin Salisbury (RDC PhD student), Ralph Plumb (the one good player, technician and ex semi-pro), Martin Bryce (goalie, note the foam shinnies), Steve Davies (MRB PhD student, 85-88)”

League winners 1988/89. Dr Keith Dillon, postgraduates Jon Cox, Adrian Moore, Andrew Craig and Dr David Parker.

Over hill, over dale

Departmentally-fostered interest in the outdoors continued from the seventies The 70's, with day visits by coach to Hadrian's Wall (1981, 1984) and Borrowdale (1983). Self-catering weekends, using a combination of minibus and private cars, became more popular. Most of the images below come from visits to Troutbeck School (1980, 1982, 1984), Ambleside Youth Hostel (1983) and then annually (1985-9) to Hayesdale Lodge near Brothers Water.
