Heritage Passage

Begin the Trail, by going through the original college entrance (dating from 1846) from Lord Mayor’s Walk. This corridor was once known as “Windy Passage.” The artwork to your left, created by former student Catherine Scriven, is titled, Alumni Abundantes, after the college motto: “Ut Vitam Habeant Ut Abundantius” – That they may have life and have it more abundantly.

The display cabinet shows memorabilia and information dating back over the last 175 years of teaching at York St John. Other heritage display cabinets are sited in Temple Hall Foyer, and the entrance to Foss Building. These are not part of this trail, but well worth the diversion, if you have time.

We will now go into the Quad - go through the door straight in front of you.
