Solving the Mystery of St. Etheldreda's College

Derek James of the Norwich Evening News posted an article this week, "Solving the mystery of 'St. Etheldreda's College,'" where he reports on efforts to learn more about the institution. St. Etheldreda's, also known as The Norwich Diocesan Training College operated in several locations from 1839 until it was destroyed during the Blitz in 1942.
Keswick Hall College of Education filled a need for teacher training in the post-war period from 1948-1981 and web pages devoted to its history include a brief sketch of the Norwich training college with a number of interesting photographs.
