Stramongate School. This school, founded by the Society of Friends in 1698, occupied premises beyond this passageway from 1792 to 1932. It has connections with two famous scientists: John Dalton founder of the Atomic Theory and "father of modern chemistry", who taught here from 1781- to 1793 and Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington, pioneer of stellar structure, author of "The Expanding Universe", former Chief Assistant at Greenwich Observatory, Professor of Astronomy at the University of Cambridge, who was born here in 1882, his father then being the Headmaster.
