Leamington Spa's first town hall
Leamington Spa's first town hall
This building on High Street was Leamington's first town hall, dating from 1831 and built to match the town's growth into a fashionable place to visit and take the waters. When the new town hall SP3165 : Town Hall, Royal Leamington Spa opened in 1884 the local police, who up until then had occupied a small corner of the building, took it over completely and it became Leamington Police Station. The police too have moved to new larger premises in Hamilton Terrace SP3165 : The Police Station, Royal Leamington Spa and today it is the Polish Club, reflecting the many Poles who came to the town as wartime refugees.
