Foundation Stone #1
I only recently discovered that there are a pair of foundation stones underneath the University Tower. Well, I knew there had to be at least one somewhere in the Gilbert Scott Building.
The above one, located just behind the double-doors to the south of the Cloisters, is on the right when looking back at the Cloisters, and reads:
THIS FOUNDATION STONE WAS LAID BY
H.R.H. EDWARD, PRINCE OF WALES
8TH, OCTOBER, 1868.
Furthermore, I found out something very interesting about the foundation stones, which I’ll reveal tomorrow when I post a photo of the second foundation stone.
