The Lancashire Independent College was designed by Irwin and Chester in 1843, built specially for the purpose of training Nonconformist Ministers, who because of their religious faith, were denied access to the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. It is a gothic-style stone building with octagonal tower and pinnacles. Recent refurbishment has converted the building into a residential college for the General & Municipal Boilermakers' Union. A decorative bookplate that includes the College motto in Greek on a scroll cartouche.
