Cobham College
Cobham College
Cobham College is to be found behind the church and can normally be visited during daylight hours. The College was founded in 1362 by Sir John de Cobham as a College for priests. The first Foundation was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1539-40 and the buildings remained uninhabited until the death of Sir William Brooke, Lord Cobham in 1596. In his will he made provision for the founding of the present almshouses. The old buildings were divided up into 21 houses, each having one room on the ground floor and one on the first. In 1981 the interior of the College was reconstructed to produce 13 modern, self-contained flats.
