Oxonia Illustrata

David Loggan.....St Alban Hall, 24 Merton

St Alban Hall, one of the former halls of the University of Oxford, which occupied part of the site upon which Merton College, Oxford stands. St Alban's Quad was originally St Alban Hall, a medieval student residence that survived as an independent Hall of the University until 1882, when it was incorporated with Merton College. John Henry Newman briefly held the position of vice-principal in 1825. The St Alban Hall buildings were reconstructed by Basil Champneys in 1905-1910.
