Keble College brickwork
Keble College brickwork
This is the warden's lodgings on the corner of Parks Road and Museum Road. Built c.1870 and good example of the architect William Butterfield's use of polychromatic brickwork, described by its critics (who were legion) as the "holy zebra" style. It was in fact defiant assertion of the college's high church position and a deliberate challenge to the institution over the road (the University Museum, partly visible in this image) where Charles Darwin's newly published thesis on evolution was being hotly debated.
