Archive Image of the Month

Let Selwyn's archivist, Elizabeth Stratton, give you a taster of the college archives. Every month Elizabeth selects a particularly interesting piece from the archives and provides an insight into its history and significance. 

Archive Image of the Month – March 2020

Choir tour to Yorkshire, 1971
 Archive Image 89 - March 2020

Our archive image this month shows a group from the Selwyn College Choir on a visit to Fountains Abbey during their tour to Yorkshire in 1971. The photo was kindly donated in 2014 by Dr Tony Reed (third from the right) who sang counter-tenor in the choir from 1968-71. Tony’s memories of the tour were confirmed by the report in the Calendar, with the accommodation for the tour being arranged in Ripon by the then senior organ scholar, Andrew Newberry. The choir sang Evensong at Ripon Cathedral, York Minster, Howden Minster and also performed concerts at Winksley and most memorably at Richmond parish church.

As always, any questions about the college archives can be directed to the archivist on We are always grateful to hear from members of college about any photographs and memories you may have of your time at Selwyn and they can also be uploaded directly here.
