Photographer's Note

Wadham College is a college of the University of Oxford founded in 1610 by Dorothy Wadham during the reign of King James I. This picture was taken from the entrance looking into the front quad. The fine building is described as 'Jacobean Gothic'. Christopher Wren was amongst many notable early members of the college. Wadham College has about 150 graduate students and about 450 undergraduates.

The University of Oxford is one of the leading universities in the world. It is also the oldest in the English speaking world and the second oldest surviving university in the world with evidence of teaching from 1096 (oldest is the University of Bologna - approximately 1088). The individual colleges of Oxford are self-governing.

This picture was taken during a wonderful TE weekend based beside the Oxford Canal in Copredy (thanks to Ricx). Wandering around Oxford on Sunday was delightful. Wadham College was closed to the public but the main door was open and we were allowed to take a few pictures from the entrance.
