Founded in 1567 - Rugby School
Rugby School, Rugby
Rugby School is one of the oldest independent (private) schools in Britain. I understand there is a 'tour'. It is on my list. An interesting titbit: Rugby School was founded and provided for by Lawrence Sherrif in his will. Lawrence Sherrif made his fortune by supplying groceries to Queen Elizabeth I. Not bad.
Last week, I did a piece on William Webb Ellis. That is his statute with a broad view of one small corner of Rugby School behind. More to follow after I go on that tour.
