The college was built in honour of John Keble, a founder member of the Oxford Movement. This movement sought to stress the Catholic nature of the Church of England. The beautiful complex brick work was designed by William Butterfield, one of the most influential Gothic architects of the 19th Century. William Butterfield used a lot of polychromy in the design of Keble College. A lot.
