St. William's College, named after William Fitzherbert, Archbishop of York and great grandson of William the Conqueror, was built between 1465 and 1467 to house priests. Our walking tour guide led us into the courtyard to see the 12 figures symbolizing the part of the harvest that occurs during each of the months that line the eaves. Most are original but missing parts.

Located on College Street, you can visit the courtyard with no charge.
