Notes:

Wadham is less altered than any other college in Oxford.

It is the finest illustration of the fact that the Gothic style survived in Oxford when it was being rapidly superseded elsewhere.

No building in Oxford (very few buildings anywhere) owe their effect so completely to their simplicity and their absence of adornment. (p. 127)

Wadham college dates from the early 1600s but the hall shown here could be two or even three hundred years older in design, it seems.
