Hey there. Take it easy! I am Dietmar from Germany, wanting to be in European Unions with you! This college small but small is beauty, I say. The sundial stands proud, and is accurate for time. Great British political leaders the Milliband boys studied here...More

Founded in 1517 by Richard Fox, the bishop of Winchester, is one, if not the smallest colleges of Oxford. The whole of the front quad on Merton Street is original and the quad's sundial is topped by a pelican, which is the colleges symbol.

Extraordinary to think that despite being founded in 1517 (by the then Bishop of Winchester, Richard Fox) Corpus Christi is still only the 12th oldest Oxford college. It's also one of the smallest both in terms of its size and undergraduate population of around 230...More

Excellent welcome from the Lodge Porter, who gave me a brief insight in to the College history, soon celebrating 500 years from founding. Well worth a visit, to see the Pelican sun dial.

Though one of the smallest colleges in Oxford it is no less lovely. Worth a visit to see the old (1581) pillar style Pelican Sundial. Also a scenic overlook to Merton Field.
