WINSCOOT CAMPUS: This is what it looks like inside the Wainscott campus at the Wits University of Technology in London.
The campus, which was built in the 1930s, has been in operation since the 1960s, and the facility is famous for its stunning architecture and a large collection of artefacts, including the original “Hobbit” books.
The Wainscot campus is the first of the “world’s largest manufacturing facilities” in Britain.
The Wits university has two buildings in the campus that are open to the public: the Willscot Hall (which houses the Winscot Centre for Science and Engineering) and the Wires Building (home to the Wineswamp Centre for the Study of Engineering).

“The Winscots campus is a place where you can meet other people who are passionate about engineering,” said Mr De La Capra, who was joined by his colleagues from the UK’s Science Museum and the London School of Economics and Political Science.
As well as being a place for science and engineering, WinsCots is also home to a wide range of community events, such as the Wishes for Science Festival and a local youth festival.

In 2018, a special exhibition of the books, which were first published in 1928, will open.
Other local museums are also interested in the history of the campus.
“I’m sure they’re not going to be the only museum to get in on the action,” said Sarah O’Donnell, director of the London Museum of Engineering and a member of the National Museum of British Science.
“There’s probably a few other places in the country who are going to get involved.”
“Winscott is the ideal place for the Museum’s history to be shown, and I hope we get some of the materials for this exhibition in the museum itself,” she added.

THE MUSEUM: This view of the main building, which houses the museum’s collection of artifacts, is taken from a roof on the top floor.
There are three buildings on the campus: the “Winscot Hall”, the “Hobscot Hall” and the “Faces” building.
These buildings are home to the “Bookswamp” collection, the largest collection of hobbit literature in the world, which is housed in the Wandscot Centre.
Its collection is also part of the museum, which has two of the largest collections of books in the UK.
All of WinsScots collection is housed at the “World’s Largest Book Collection” in the main “Wainscot Centre”.
“We really want to get into the history and the history behind Winsborough’s manufacturing tradition, so that when we look at some of these artefacts we’re not just looking at something that’s made at Winschurch,” Ms O’Neill said.
Ms O’Connell said the Museum had been interested in WinsCat’s history since the mid-1990s, when the Museum and a group of other UK institutions began exploring the possibility of hosting an exhibition on Winscat, a company based in the village of Wits in Wenscot, which made its mark in the 19th century.
Museum director Mark Purdon said the WensCat exhibition would help the museum “look at the history around Winscats contribution to British industry”.
In January 2018, the Wendscott Hall was renovated and opened to the wider public.
