The Library at Ridley Hall

Ridley’s library was moved to a new fully-accessible location in the basement of the college, accessed from the courtyard by stairs or a platform lift.

The library holds around 11,000 items related to the Church of England, evangelism, spirituality, apologetics, Christianity and the arts, Christianity and science.

We also hold a number of special collections including:

  • An eighteenth-century private library of books and pamphlets belonging to the Revd Robert Cecil
  • Papers of Charles Simeon (1759–1836)
  • Letters of Henry Martyn
  • Letters from John Newton to John Thornton (1773–78)

Access to the Library

Those who study with us have 24-hour access to the college library.

Students of the Cambridge Theological Federation are welcome to use the library Monday to Friday during Reception hours.

If you are not a member of the Federation, you will need prior permission to use the library – email the library team in advance of your visit.
