The Sheldonian

Number of views as of 6th July 2014 = 470.

One of the city of Oxford’s finest architectural masterpieces, the Sheldonian Theatre was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and built in the 1660s with funds donated by Gilbert Sheldon, who held the offices of Bishop of London, Archbishop of Canterbury and Chancellor of Oxford University. Its purpose was to provide an appropriate venue for the principal meetings and public ceremonies of the University, and this remains its purpose today, though it can also be hired for conferences and similar functions.

Hello and thankyou for visiting my portfolio.

The name RedHillDigital comes from the area where I live (Redhill, in the town of Bournemouth, in the county of Dorset on the South Coast of England), plus my interest in Digital photography.

My real name is Howard and I’m always pleased to receive feedback on my work.
