St John's College

Interesting
Founded in 1555, it stretches back from the original 16 C façade. The grounds were designed by Capability Brown. The front quad contains remains of the medieval St Bernard's college (1437), while the columns of Canterbury quad (1631-1636) give a touch of Italian Classicism to Jacobean style.
