Things we didn’t know about Cheltenham


Last week was Induction week here at Francis Close Hall. New English Literature students researched and created projects on the theme of ‘Literary Cheltenham: Writing the Town’. Every year, students teach us something new about the town and its environs. Did you know that Sir Walter Scott lived here for a while, as did Byron; that All Saint’s Church, Pittville, is French neo-Gothic; and that the brother of Gustav Holst, both born in Cheltenham, was a Hollywood actor during the 1930s? 

Our thanks go to all our students for their fresh eyes and remarkable curiosity.
