Wolverhampton Town Hall
This is the Town Hall seen along North Street near Queen Square. It is used at present by the Magistrates Service.

The building, which replaced an previously demolished town hall built in 1687, was designed by Manchester architect Ernest Bates and built by Phillip Horsman of Wolverhampton. It is in the French Renaissance style with a sandstone façade and rusticated plinth. The building was officially opened on 19th October 1871.

Fact: Wolverhampton Town Hall held the Dutch crown jewels for the duration of the second world war.
