                                                                  Blundell's School

Dating to 1604, Blundell's school was funded by an inheritance from Peter Blundell, a wealthy merchant who died in 1601. He left money and lands in Tiverton and South Devon to found a school to promote 'sound learning and true religion' - at the time it was the largest and grandest in the area.
