Our Trinity College Christmas cards, feature an image of the armillary sphere in front of Kettell Hall.

Kettell Hall was built in 1615 by Ralph Kettell, president of Trinity from 1599 until his death in 1643. It was built as a private investment, with rooms available for rent by wealthier undergraduates during Kettell’s lifetime. For over 200 years the Hall was occupied as a private house, until, in 1890, Trinity purchased the freehold and brought it into the college precinct. Since 1973 Kettell Hall has been home to Trinity’s postgraduate students. The lavender garden was created in 2003 and the work was awarded an Oxford Preservation Trust plaque. The armillary sphere, which sits prominently in the centre of the garden, was designed by sculptor David Harber and was given in memory of an Old Member of Trinity, Dr Wilfrid Hunt (1935), and his wife, Joan.
