The old college in Week St Mary Cornwall. This free school was founded in 1506 by Thomasine Bonaventure, a local woman who had married (and outlived!) no less than three wealthy London merchants. It is one of the earliest schools to be founded by a woman. Today it is owned by the Landmark Trust and can be rented for holidays.
