A site between Sidgwick Avenue and West Road housing buildings for faculties in the arts and humanities and general lecture rooms. The Sidgwicks, whose name was given to the Avenue, which runs past Newnham College, were Henry Sidgwick, Knightbridge Professor of Moral Philosophy, 1883-1909, one of the founders of Newnham College, and his wife, Eleanor Sidgwick (née Balfour), its Principal (1892-1910).
