King's College, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England
The Gatehouse and Screen from outside King's College in King's Parade with the east end of the chapel standing prominently beyond. The rather interesting architecture originates from the design of William Wilkins (who also designed the National Gallery in London) in the 1820s.
Travelling north on King's Parade, the way we are looking, will lead you into Trinity Street.
This is the South side of Kings College Chapel. During the first 15 years of construction the stone used came from quarries at Tadcaster in Yorkshire which the college owned. The work was paused at this time when Henry was imprisoned and murdered in the Tower of London.
The work restarted 22 years later using a different stone. The demarcation line between the two types of stone can be seen in the buttresses.
The West Door of Kings College Chapel with its variety of adornments including Tudor Roses.
This door is supposedly used only by Archbishops and Kings.
The Main Gatehouse from inside Front Court with the Wilkin's Building just showing on the right. Doesn't that lawn make you just a little envious?
The Fountain, in the right half of the picture, is surmounted by a statue of Henry VI with the symbolic figures of Religion and Learning seated below.
