The story of Lindley D is an intoxicating one, enveloping you in a world of
mystique and squalor. The first thing to note is that campus accomodation at
York is not available to second years, but only to first, third and fourth
years if they need it. Of course, we were not so organised to find accomodation
in York for a second time, so most of us ended up back 'on campus'.
The main thing to note is that University-provided accomodation is primarily
provided for first years. However, in the serendipitous case of Lindley D, the
majority of residents were third years. Hence, for the first years this was a
nightmare. More so when one considers what a pack of rogues they were to live
with. But they were loveable with it, of course.
Unlike second year, not many of us were handy with the camera around the house
so not much photographic evidence exists of the place. However, presented here
to you are a couple of the photographs that did survive before Lindley D was
systematically razed to the ground...
Lindley D Interior
The view of Al's room (15) from the door. Note the lack of video collection on
the shelves due to packing. Also note the
window to the extreme left of the picture. Sad.
And here is Al in his natural habitat, in full dressing gown regalia. The
computer screen never lies.
(From l-r) Aaron, Andy and Al having a polite conversation over a fine brew in
Halifax College's very own bar, JJ's. Note the Snakey B in the foreground.
Some habits are hard to break, eh?
