♔Trinity College- Oxford-England

Trinity College Oxford was founded in 1555 by Sir Thomas Pope on land bought following the abolition of Durham College during the period of Protestant Reformation. Pope was a Catholic who had no surviving children, and he hoped that by founding a college he would be remembered in the prayers of its students.

The College remained a largely all-male institution until 1979, when (in common with a number of other Oxford colleges) it admitted its first women undergraduates. It is now fully co-educational and co-residential.

Trinity was one of the locations used for filming the original mini- series Brideshead Revisited; its grounds were also in part, the basis for Fleet College in Charles Finch’s, ‘The Last Enchantments’.
