History

Detailed History

Churchill College, Cambridge was built as the National and Commonwealth memorial to Sir Winston Churchill. Sir Winston visited the site on 17 October 1959 before anything was built, and planted two trees: the mulberry in the courtyard adjacent to the Porters Lodge and the English stalked oak in front of the library. This was one of his last public engagements.

The College was opened in 1964 by His Royal Highness Prince Philip, who remains the College Visitor. The College was given an English Heritage Listed Building Grade II status in 1992.
