I have always found the Trumpington Street façade of Corpus Christi rather forbidding, but the interior of New Court, and the east side with the Chapel (shown here) is as homely and tranquil as a college should be. New Court is the work of William Wilkins begun around 1822. Wilkins reputation is tainted by the adverse criticism levelled at his later National Gallery, deemed to be too weak to pull together the amorphous and accidental shape of Trafalgar Square. But his early gothic revival buildings are charming. This was his favourite and he is buried in the crypt under the chapel.
