Corpus Christi College

Founded in 1352, Corpus Christi is the second smallest college in Cambridge but nonetheless the most interesting from a historical standpoint. Old Court still has its monastic-style central buildings made of irregular stonework with clay dressing (1352-1377). The Saxon church of St Bene't adjoining the Old Court is the oldest in Cambridge. New Court was designed by William Wilkins, now buried in the chapel.
