The Old Granary

The Old Granary is a Grade II listed building with its main entrance on Silver Street and an internal entrance from the College garden. The building has extraordinary character: built in the early nineteenth century, it has been remodelled from its beginnings as a functional granary, becoming residential accommodation at the end of that century.  It was also part of the Darwin residence from the time of Professor Sir George Darwin on.

Its appearance from the outside is matched inside with rooms of varying sizes and many original features. There are superb views of the Mill Pond from many of the bedrooms. 

The Old Granary contains ten student rooms sharing two kitchens, one shower, one bath, three toilets and a dining area.
