West Hall at University College


This pic shows the magnificent West Hall at UC which is used mostly as a lecture hall and for writing the dreaded exams. It is a fabulous space with much carving (there are 267 carved roundels along the top of the oak panelling showing faces, animals, monsters & geometric designs), stained glass, and just the scale of the place. I had never been in here before and I was awestruck!

It looks a location of a movie, it's so beautiful and well preserved.

This is lovely. I imagine the students, who are quaking over the exams they are taking, barely notice how fine the hall is.

Universities seem to take a perverse delight in holding exams in the loveliest surroundings. Ours does the same: http://occasionalscotland.blogspot.com/2010/05/exam-seasonto-end.html
