400 years ago Edward Wilson passed away

Posted 5th December 2018

As of last monday it was 400 years since Edward Wilson passed away . The schools founder was buried in the crypt of the original St.Giles church. The church was destroyed in the great fire supposedly by a faulty heating system in 1841. The new church (opposite the old school) was consecrated in the 1844, it also had extensive damage in the second World War . A memorial plaque is still in St Giles .
