Ely Theological College
Ely Theological College was a school in Ely, Cambridgeshire, for training clergy in the Church of England. Founded in 1876  by James Woodford, Anglican Bishop of Ely,  the college had a strong Anglo-Catholic tradition. Ely's "ritualistic" (i.e. "Catholic") tendencies were attacked by Mr Samuel Smith MP in a House of Commons debate in 1899. The college closed in 1964.
