HISTORICAL NOTE: St Katharine's College Chapel was built to
replace a chapel forming part of the religious hospice,
founded in 1148 by Queen Matilda and later known as the
Hospital of St Katharine, on a site next to the Tower of
London; in 1825 the original site was made into St Katharine's
Dock. The patronage of the chapel had always rested with the
Queen of England; Queen Alexandra, Danish wife of King Edward
VII, granted it to the Danish community in London.
