Arts in Jericho

Since the days of the pre-Raphaelites, Jericho has been a focal point for artistic activity - for painters, writers and more recently TV production.

Did you know?

Why Hart Street?

Hart Street was named after the Printer to the University 1883-1915.

Cranham Street used to be a blot on the city

Before Grantham House was built, the site became notoriously derelict, making Cranham Street according to the local press a ‘blot on the city’ – wrecked by local children, and a refuge for rats and for ‘layabouts sleeping off the drink’ who were repeatedly evicted by the police.
