The college, one of the three 'Turl Street Colleges', was founded in 1314 by Walter de Stapledon, a Devon man who became Bishop of Exeter and Treasurer of England. He wished to provide an educated clergy for the parishes of his diocese. The Hall was built in 1618 with a matching Chapel opposite, whilst the remainder of Front Quad was completed between 1672 & 1710. Behind it lies the Fellows' Garden, one of the loveliest gardens in Oxford. The chapel was rebuilt in 1859 by George Gilbert Scott, in the Victorian Gothic style, with its spire, or fleche, dominating the Turl Street skyline. The interior is rich with the glittering floor mosaics, dark canopied stalls, rich stained glass and a lofty ceiling.
