Travel memories: Keele University

I love looking out for modernist architecture in other places, and when I went to the Hazards Conference at Keele University it was an ideal opportunity to admire some architecture there and along the way at the service stations.
Many of the campus buildings were built between the 1950s and the 1970s, so it's exactly the era of architecture I'm interested in. The chapel is a particularly striking building, and was built in 1965. I had guessed it was more recent, maybe the 1980s, because of its amazing metallic appearance. It contrasts really well with the ivy growing on the side of it.

And here's my favourite modernist service station, where we stopped along the way.
