Up on the Roof

On Saturday, a group of PKP students had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to climb up onto the roof of King’s College Chapel. The first stone of the chapel was laid in 1441 and it has since become one of the most iconic buildings in the world, hosting the famous ‘Carols from King’s’ service every Christmas.

The tour was hosted by the College’s charismatic chaplain Richard Lloyd Morgan, who shared some details of the building’s history as well as posing for an endless stream of photos.

Visits to King’s Chapel Roof are usually limited to King’s College undergraduate and graduate students. However, there are usually several chances for PKP students to enjoy the spectacular views. There are also regular sessions with historian Nick Chrimes¬†to learn about the Chapel building itself.

For more information about the Chapel, see the King’s College website.
