Artist's Description

View from St Mary’s

Number of views as of 23rd February 2016 = 1200.

A view from the tower of St Mary’s University Church, Oxford, England, looking north-west over Brasenose College and Jesus College.
The spire in the background is that of Exeter College chapel.

Climbing the 124 steps of St Mary’s Church tower affords the visitor a bird’s eye view over the City of Dreaming Spires.

Dating back to the 13th century, the University Church is one of the oldest University buildings and housed the University library until the 15th century. It was also a centre for University ceremonials until this role was taken over by the Sheldonian Theatre in 1669.

The Church played a central part in one of the less glorious episodes in Oxford’s long history. For it was here that Bishops Cramner, Latimer and Ridley were put on trial during the persecution of protestants by Queen ‘Bloody’ Mary before they were burned at the stake in Broad Street in 1555/1556.

Date: 21st March 2009.
