spinning in the cloisters

The cloisters en route to the Human Resources office - this rather fine spiral is, in fact, the base of a solid iron cross.  This is not (ostensibly) in case one needs a quick prayer on the way up there, but rather a sign that the space is rather strangely shared with the campus's United Church (that is, united Methodist and Presbyterian).  This is probably why it feels, suddenly and disconcertingly, rather like the red bricked passages (complete with stained glass windows), of Mansfield College - although, happily, without the bad portraits of non-conformist male worthies staring down on one.
