LONG FACADE OF PEMBROKE COLLEGE AND WREN'S CLOISTERS AT EMMANUEL

LONG FACADE OF PEMBROKE COLLEGE AND WREN'S CLOISTERS AT EMMANUEL

Pembroke (bottom) was founded in 1346 by the widow of Ayiner de Valence, Earl of Pembroke. The original quadrangle existed as late as 874, when it was demolished by a Victorian architect, Waterhouse, who was also responsible for the facade we see above Emmanuel College dates from 1684 and is built on the site of a Dominican monastery. Of its first court (top), at which we are looking, the north side still contains ions of the original religious buildings, and the eastern side, with its cloisters and the chapel, was built by Sir Christopher Wren.
