Vaughan Working Men's College was founded in Revd David Vaughan in 1862 in order to provide education for under-educated men. The College soon expanded to accept women and in 1908 moved into premises on Great Central Street (pictured). This building was demolished in the 1950s during the creation of a new road scheme, with the road (Vaughan Way) being named after it.

The inscription above the doors reads "Sirs, ye are brethren". The railings to the right are of St Nicholas Church.
