History of Old Divinity School, Trinity Street

This was built by Basil Champneys in 1878-9 following a competition in 1876. Pevsner describes it as early Tudor, ‘the treatment lively and not at all pedantic ….. staircases at both ends, each an intricate play of stone shafts and vaults – forerunners of Champneys’ Rylands Library at Manchester.’

1913: Selwyn Divinity School

Canon H B Swete DD, Regius Professor of Divinity

Frederick Harris, attendant

J F Miller and Sons, Wine Vaults
