Chad Varah House
Chad Varah House
Named after Chad Varah, founder of the Samaritans who studied here when it was a Theological College. The terracing is reputedly part of the Roman terracing, there were two medieval churches on this site at one time and later the site of the Hare and Hounds Inn, later the Fighting Cocks Inn which was demolished to make way for this building. It started life as the County Hospital by John Carr in 1776 until superseded by the new County Hospital in 1878 and was known as the Bishop's Hostel until renamed in the late 20th century. It is now part of the University of Lincoln Cathedral campus, home to Conservation & Restoration and History of Art & Design.
