Cross over the road to view the Vaughan Library…
Charles John Vaughan was headmaster for only a few years before resigning to accept the bishopric of Rochester, from which he withdrew without taking office. 
Recent research has suggested that he may have been forced out by the threat of the revelation of a homosexual affair - but this is disputed.
The Library is an English Heritage listed building designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, a leading architect in the Gothic revival in architecture, and was built between 1861 and 1863.   
Continue down past ‘Obadiah Slope’ and cross back over the road to the top of West Street…
You can divert here across the road to view the water fountain where Harrow inhabitants drew their water.
