The stained glass windows in Speldhurst Church are famous for their beautiful designs by Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris.

On Wednesday 14th July, the Friends of the College arranged a private tour of the church, followed by a generous garden tea which even included a cake decorated in Arts and Crafts style with the name and emblem of the College.


Sunday 18th July saw the second College pilgrimage of the year, this time to the Shrine of St Richard of Chichester.

As well as enjoying an excellent lunch and a personal tour of the Cathedral, the group attended Choral Evensong for the conclusion of the Southern Cathedrals Festival before making a final visit to the Shrine itself.
