These houses were constructed in 1363 as accommodation for the College of Vicars set up by Ralph of Shrewsbury, Bishop of Bath and Wells. The elegant chimneys were raised and crowned about the year 1470. This view was taken from beneath the gated entrance arch, above which is the chapel, which was their library. Access to this is gained through the arched opening on the left.
