Tom Tower, Christ Church, Oxford
Tom Tower, Christ Church, Oxford
The famous 'Tom Tower' was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and houses the 7 ton 'Great Tom' bell, taken from the 12th century Osney Abbey. The bell tolls 101 times every night at 9:05 (9pm Oxford local time), originally to sound curfew for college members (who numbered 101). The Tower is a slightly later addition to the rest of the college, founded by Cardinal Wolsey as "Cardinal's College". The photograph was taken from within Tom Quad, Oxford's largest quadrangle.
