Visit: Ushaw College, Roman Catholic Seminary, Durham
- Ushaw College |
The buildings of Ushaw date from 1804 with the original quadrangle designed by James Taylor of Islington and being occupied by 1808. By 1839 Augustus Welby Pugin was invited to begin designs for a new Chapel which eventually resulted in Gothic Revival Architecture being added to an essentially Georgian building. Father Michael Sharratt will give a guided tour through the college and library and Christopher Webster will give a short lecture ‘The Post-Waterloo Gothic Revival: the battle of the styles.’ The day ends with a walk through the garden at rhododendron time.
