I
On north-east is a range of C15 camerae now converted to Senior Common Room and rooms. The part east of the central pediment for the width of eight windows was built in 1753-1759 to design of Dr George Clarke by his trustee in Headington stone. John Townesend being the mason; the latter seems to have designed the north elevation, for Clarke left no design for this. The pedimented centrepiece of three windows and the west part of eight windows was built, with the Provost's Lodging further west, in 1773-1776 to the design of Henry Keene. An attic floor was added to the north range in 1926. Major alterations in 1966.
