2. 19 Parks Road

When the Computing laboratory moved to 19 Parks Road, it was known as the old Engineering Building. It still is an engineering building. The KDF9 computer was installed here while the Ferranti Mercury was still running at South Parks Road.

Compared to 9 South Parks Road, it had a larger computer room and better facilities for problem and data preparation. However, it didn’t seem spacious for long and, in 1967 Work began on defining the facilities and space needed in a new Computer Laboratory building.
