Glynis Statue Takes Centre Stage

A McVities branded truck pulled up behind 4West in the early hours of the morning, and workers manoeuvred a Bath Stone statue of our previous Vice Chancellor to the centre of the auditorium by the lake.

An investigation by Bath Time can reveal that the Bath Stone used to form the statue came from the demolition of Dame Breakwells previous Lansdown Crescent residence. The property was previously listed on Rightmove inviting offers in excess of £2,950,000, but failed to sell, seemingly because of the Vice Chancellors reputation.

During her closing days of employment, it appears that Glynis’ retiring wishes were to ensure her immortalisation on campus grounds, and because only the Times and the Daily Mail reported on her £16k painting, it was clear more needed to be done.

In order to cover these costs, the University has opened a stone masonry postgraduate programme, with fees in excess of £75,000 per year
