Raise your glasses, please

(Photograph) - Raise your glasses, please: Leonard Hewitt's Hollings Building at Manchester Metropolitan University - nicknamed the "toast rack" - is one of eight post war university buildings to be recommended by English Heritage for listed status. The others include buildings at Westminster College, London, the University of Hertfordshire, Oaklands College in St Alban's, Nottingham Trent University, and the YMCA Indian Students' Union in London.

Keele University Chapel, built in the early 1960s, has been nominated in the churches category. Only one university building is expected to receive the more elevated grade II* listing: the Christ Church Picture Gallery in Oxford. Whether the "toast rack" will be listed remains in doubt because an associated circular building - known as "the egg" - has been enlarged as a library.
