Old Members’ Day – 22nd June 2013

After assembling for coffee in the Ship Street Centre we set out on a tour of Oriel, the fifth college to be founded, in 1326.   Our guide was  Robert Evans, Emeritus Fellow of the College and until recently Regius Professor of History. Later we lunched at the Chiang Mai Thai restaurant on the High Street.

An extended review of the day’s event will be added shortly. In the meantime we are indebted to David Skyrme for these photographs.

Welsh Marches 11-13th June 2013

“In June 2013 22 Old Members and partners visited Abergavenny. Why? We were in search of good fellowship, fine dining, and the tomb of the first Principal of the College. This quasi pilgrimage was curated by raconteur and historian Clive Jenkins (1966), whose ancestors are buried in the area”.  Read more of Stephen Walkers report.

You can also now read Clive’s history of the Marches of Wales.
