Saw a property that required renovating and extending for our private use. Went to Rowan House, unannounced, and had a short meeting with one of the officers, which proved very helpful. I purchased the property, had plans submitted. Everything went smoothly and any comments were of a constructive theme. A pleasing experience.

Took some time on hold but I phoned during a busy time. Once through to an adviser she sorted my problem in 2 minutes.

Colchester Library

Trinity Square, Colchester CO1 1JB, UK – 0345 603 7628

Well spaced and nice collection of books. I would have given it 5 stars if they had provided toilets. Other than that, it's brilliant 👍

Fantastic library! It's a bright and welcoming space, with a nice cafe upstairs and a very nice quiet study area. The staff are kind and friendly; I needed a difficult-to-find book and they quickly located a copy and had it sent to the library so I didn't have to travel to pick it up. Their collection of popular fiction, classic lit and nonfiction is impressive. If I can't find something at the uni library, it's usually at the Colchester library. All in all, it's a great asset to the community, and I feel very lucky to have it!
