WADHAM COLLEGE

DESCRIPTION + /

University college established in 1612, by Nicholas Wadham, on the site of an Austin Friary which was founded in 1266-7 and dissolved 1538. The friary church served as a theological college until 1480, and the chapter house and refectory as class rooms until the 16th century. The College buildings remain relatively unaltered since the 17th century and are constructed of local Oxfordshire stone with slate roofs. A small section of the boundary wall was recorded in 1974, and shown to be part of an ancillary outbuilding of the friary. This was substantially altered in the Post-Mediaeval period, and eventually demolished after recording
