Chichele College venue information
English Heritage building. Built in 1425 for prayer and learning. Meadow behind was used to grow saffron for dyeing and flavouring. 1542 Henry V111 seized goods, papers etc and the college went into disrepair.
Henry Chichele (1362-1443) lived in Higham Ferrer's and was Chancellor to Henry V and Archbishop of Canterbury until his death. He was the founder of All Souls College in Oxford and bestowed Higham Ferrers with its Bede House, Chantry Chapel and Chichele College.
