Artist's Description

Now we’ve just walked under Hertford Bridge, Hertford College, which is located in Catte Street, directly opposite the main entrance of the original Bodleian Library.
The college was originally founded as Hart Hall in 1282 by Elias de Hertford. In medieval Oxford, halls were primarily lodging houses for students and resident tutors, and thus did not have the same status as fully fledged colleges. Many of the great minds of the English Renaissance studied at what would eventually become Hertford College including the metaphysical poet John Donne, satirist Jonathan Swift, the political theorist Thomas Hobbes, and the first translator of the Bible into English, William Tyndale. The Hall became Hertford College in 1740.

i love the sky reflections onto its windows :)).
