Bell Language School

Notes on the history of the Bell Language School

Pevsner writes in Cambridgeshire (2014) p. 332:

[Bell International College] occupies what must be Cambridge;s grandest C20 house: a neo-Early Georgian mansion, dated 1940, and big enough to have two eleven bay frontages. Guy Dawber was reportedly its architect, but Dawber died in 1938, so it may have been his successor, A R Fox, who supplied the design.
