The ornate mosaic and tiled interior of Keble College chapel which is full of colour and abstract geometrical patterns. Designed by William Butterfield, Keble College came towards the end of his career, when his idiosyncratic talent had been well tried and tested.

Keble College being one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford, was established in 1870. Having been built as a monument to John Keble, it remains distinctive for its once-controversial neo-gothic red-brick buildings designed by William Butterfield. The buildings are also notable for breaking from Oxbridge tradition by arranging rooms along corridors rather than around staircases.

Among the many former students of Keble College - there is one who stands out as a major influence in my life - My father who studied history there from 1937 to 1939.
