Chethams School medieval buildings

The original buildings which house Chetham's School and Library date from the early 15th century and were constructed around the baronial hall of Thomas de la Warre, Lord of Manchester. Humphrey Chetham (1580-1653), merchant and landowner founded the hospital school and library which bear his name. The present Chetham's School of Music dates from 1969. Chetham's Library is a separate institution to the school and is the oldest surviving public library in the English speaking world. Go to the Chetham's Library website

Many people - even locals - are unaware of this remarkable medieval building in the heart of Manchester.
