College Spire wins award
The College has won an award from the Oxford Preservation Trust for the lighting of our spire. The new lighting arrangements are part of the “Cross of Light” initiative, funded by Mr & Mrs Ian Laing, which provides lighting for key buildings in Oxford city centre. The initiative aims to reinforce the beauty of the vista between Exeter’s spire and the tower of Wesley Memorial Church on New Inn Hall Street, and the spire is now lit at night with a cool grey light on the spire itself, contrasted with a warm light within. The Trust described the project as “making a very special contribution to the character of Oxford at night”.
