Ship Street, Oxford
Ship Street, Oxford
Ship Street derives its name from the Anglo-Saxon Cheap, meaning market: the same word that gives us our modern adjective cheap, and the many place-names with the element "Chipping".
The college buildings on the left, and indeed many of the houses on the right, belong to Jesus College.
Jesus College
Jesus College (in full: Jesus College in the University of Oxford of Queen Elizabeth's Foundation) is one of the colleges of the University of Oxford. The college was founded by Elizabeth I on 27 June 1571 for the education of clergy, though students now study a broad range of secular subjects. A major driving force behind the establishment of the college was Hugh Price, a churchman from Brecon in Wales. The oldest buildings, in the first quadrangle, date from the 16th and early 17th centuries; a second quadrangle was added between about 1640 and about 1713, and a third quadrangle was built in about 1906. Further accommodation was built on the main site to mark the 400th anniversary of the college, in 1971, and student flats have been constructed at sites in north and east Oxford.
