Burnham College


The earliest information dates from 1883 when Ernest Albert Russell was the Headmaster.

The building remained a college until at least 1889. Mate’s Guide of 1903 shows it was a Restaurant at this time. The relationship to the Russells appeared to continue as their name appears on the advert.

The ground floor in later years became a Co-op store and then a shoe shop.
