So what links Harvard and Cambridge university? Answer John Harvard and Emmanuel College, Cambridge,England
John Harvard was educated at Emmanuel College Cambridge and then emigrated to America, where he lived for the rest of his life. On his death he bequeathed monies which enabled the setting up of Harvard university.
So for Inspired Sunday this week I am sharing from our trip to Cambridge
the chapel of Emmanuel College
There is John Harvard depicted in the stained glass and also
you can read more of these lovely windows here
Well here is the church in question, but the clock is going just fine these days….
Rupert Brooke wrote the poem “The Old Vicarage, Granchester” and the lines
“Stands the church clock at ten-to-three
And is there honey still for tea?”
on a trip to Berlin in 1912 whilst feeling homesick for Cambridge and in particular Granchester, his friends and the idyllic lifestyle he had led as a student.
If you would like to read more on Rupert Brooke, look here
If this wets your appetite ,, then visit the church
and if you visit Granchester near Cambridge, be sure to take in this museum, and have your tea in the same spot he used to frequent
here at the Orchard tea rooms
you won’t be disappointed.

We spent a couple of happy hours in here this visit before going to

Probably one of the most iconic religious buildings in England. I bring you King’s College Cambridge.
