Post Lot Text
In 1804 the East India Company, in consequence of the rapid expansion of its many activities in India, decided to establish a university college to provide special training for young men (then called "writers") who would be sent out to staff the Indian Civil Service. These buildings were designed in 1806 by William Wilkins, the architect of Downing Collage Cambridge and University Collage London. He had then recently returned from completing his architectural studies in Athens and the Ionic influence is evident in the proportions of the porticoes and the ornamental details which he copied from the Acropolis. Until the building was completed in 1809, Hertford Castle was leased as temporary accommodation for the college.
