Peckwater Quadrangle

The Peckwater Quadrangle is one of the quadrangles of Christ Church, Oxford, England.Christ Church Library is on the south side of the quad. To the southeast is Canterbury Quadrangle, with access to Oriel Squarevia Canterbury Gate.Peckwater Quad is on the site of a medieval inn, which was run by the Peckwater family and given to St Frideswide's Priory in 1246.The buildings, including the Library, date from the 18th century. They are built in the then-fashionable Classical style. First floor rooms in this quad have traditionally been particularly sought after by undergraduate members of the college due to their size, oak panelling and high ceilings. The largest examples of these rooms can be found in the corners of the building.On 12 May 1894 and again on 20 February 1927, after dinner, Bullingdon Club members smashed almost all the glass of the lights and 468 windows in the quadrangle, along with the blinds and doors of the building.Gallery<gallery> Image:Christ Church College Rooms.jpg Image:Christ Church, peckwater quadrangle 01.JPG Image:Christ Church, peckwater quadrangle 02.JPG Image:Christ Church, peckwater quadrangle 04.JPG </gallery>See also Tom Quad Blue Boar Quadrangle Meadow Building Christ Church Library
