Notes: St Edmund's Church (now an Arts Centre) was originally built about 1269 at the same time as the priest's college of St Edmund, which stood to the east in adjacent grounds. In about 1543 the college was dissolved and sold. In 1927 the corporation bought the current house and grounds to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the foundation of the city, using the house until recently as local council offices.
