Corpus Christi

With the weather warming up again and after the last four days, the team finish today visiting Corpus Christi college. Founded in 1517, it is one of the older, smaller Oxford colleges, among its former graduates are David and Ed Miliband.

Head Gardener since 1979, David Leake, very kindly gave up his time to show us round his lovely gardens. Unlike the many traditional, formal style gardens of the oxford colleges, David has created a wild, natural garden, mixing wild and cultivated plants, seen growing together in perfect harmony. Thank you for an enjoyable garden visit.
