UNIVERSITY
 

 

Oxford

 

University College was founded in 1249. In my mind, it will always be associated  with William Turner's painting 'High Street, Oxford' currently hanging in the Ashmolean. Look across at those beautiful stone steps, raise your head up, and look squarely at the niche above. The portly Mary is standing in all her glory; if you look further along the building  you can see her sister Anne.
