1920: 2 Brookside
In 1920 Mr Gutteridge paid several visits to Cambridge with Mr Albert Reid of London (who also gave £5000) in a vain attempt to find a suitable site. Later in the year Mr Gutteridge made arrangements with the authorities of Cheshunt (Congregational) College to rent 2 Brookside. This house, in addition to providing accommodation for the Principal and his family, had rooms suitable for a Lecture Room and a Common Room. As a result it was felt that the time had come to take a definite step forward.
