So, farewell then, Pittville...

Pittville Studios are being dismantled as the Department of Art & Design at the University of Gloucestershire prepares to move into its new accommodation in the Centre for Art and Photography, at Hardwick, in Cheltenham.

Here are some pictures of the site which has been home to art and design in Cheltenham since 1968:
