St Catharine's College
St Catharine's College was founded in 1473 by the then provost of neighboring King's College. None of the original buildings remain: in the 17th century, all these were demolished and a classical redbrick court constructed. The money ran out before the fourth side was completed, so the college court opens out onto Trumpington Road. St Catharine's emblem, the golden wheel, commemorates Catharine of Alexandria who was crucified on a wheel. The Catharine Wheel firework was also named in her memory. Famous alumni include Emma Thompson and Ian McKellan.
