Marlborough College

Street MapListing Info

Listed early C18 college building in chequer brick. Built by the 6th Duke of Somerset and owner of Marlborough Castle. On his death in 1750, C House was sold and became the Castle Inn, a particularly chic stopping point on the route from London to Bath. The Castle Inn fell on hard times (like the rest of the town) with the construction of the Great Western Railway in 1837, and in 1843 was bought by the newly founded Marlborough College, who immediately began the construction of the surrounding school buildings.
