King's College Chapel, King's College, University of Cambridge.

The chapel is considered to be one of the finest English examples of late Perpendicular Gothic architecture. The chapel itself was built in phases by a succession of Kings of England from 1446 to 1515, and features the world's largest fan vault, constructed between 1512 and 1515 by master mason John Wastell. However, the chapel's large stained glass windows were not completed until 1531.

The large, wooden screen, which separates the nave from the choir and supports the chapel organ, was erected in 1532-36 by King Henry VIII of England in celebration of his marriage to Anne Boleyn. The screen is an example of early Renaissance architecture, which is a striking contrast to the Perpendicular Gothic chapel, and it was said to be "the most exquisite piece of Italian decoration surviving in England", by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'King's Head' - all very much appreciated.

Best wishes,
Philip

A superb example of English excellence in architecture many moons ago ! I have a soft spot for Anne Boleyn and it is so good to see something done in honour of her ! A great capture !!

As always you've produced a wonderfully detailed and composed image of some amazing and beautiful architecture. Fascinating info too. I recall as a visitng student a very long time ago standing outside in the early morning and hearing the choir. Wonderful!
