BRAZENOSE COLLEGE

DESCRIPTION + /

Academic secular college, founded after 1266 by discontented students from Oxford, it was suppressed in 1334, and demolished between 1688 and 1780, all that remains is the gateway.

The gateway has a two-centred head with numerous roll-and-hollow mouldings which rest on attached and detached shafts with stiff-leaf capitals and moulded bases attributable to the first half of the thirteenth century. This suggests that this part of the structure was extant prior to the foundation of the secular Brazenose College.
