Corpus Christi College

Founded in 1352, Corpus Christi is the second smallest college in Cambridge but the most interesting from a historical standpoint. Old Court still boasts its monastic-style central buildings made from irregular stonework with soft clay render (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, who is now buried in the chapel.
