Corpus Christi

I have walked around the Corpus Christi grounds during the Bridge the Gap walk. It is a beautiful college and you will enjoy walking around the two courtyards. It is the only college in Cambridge or Oxford that has been founded by its citizens in 1352.

 The term Nosey Parker was coined after Matthew Parker who was a Master of Corpus Christi in Cambridge and later Archbishop of Canterbury during the time of Henry the VIII. He used to ask questions over and over again and had a huge nose that helped coin this phase which is still used today.

You will have seen the Corpus Christi insect clock if you have had a wander around Cambridge.


All the Best!
