A little while ago we a conversation about college chapels over our 
GSM post-ringing coffee. 

I seem to remember that we thought King's College, St John's College 
and St Edward (King and Martyr) are definitely "Royal Peculiars" 
(cant remember if we though of Trinity as one) and that all other 
College Chapels are simply "peculiar" and I assumed that meant 

I do know that the colleges dont have the same legal status as 
regular parish churches - for example you need a License to get 
married in the chapel (though you can get a civil marriage blessed 
without recourse to a license).   

Interstingly we are getting more business at GSM to ring for college 
weddings (using the ubiquitous mobile phone to indicate when to 
ring). BTW we do charge the same for a college wedding as a wedding 
held in GSM (£120).
