Brightwen Binyon's List of Works

Michael Gray RIBA, is giving the next talk to the Friends this Thursday at 7.30pm in the gallery part of the museum on architect Brightwen Binyon, so I thought I'd look up more information to advertise the talk and came up with these buildings he designed.
Quite a list, 5 in Swindon, although the mechanics was an addition rather than a whole building.
Finding good photographs of these buildings is quite difficult, here's Queenstown School:
