SJ8445 : The Guildhall

taken 7 years ago, near to Newcastle-Under-Lyme, Staffordshire, Great Britain

The Guildhall
The Guildhall
In the 13th century the leading traders of Newcastle Under Lyme formed a Guild Merchant which then led to the building of a guildhall. The original building was first replaced in 1713 and was subsequently remodelled in 1861 with the addition of a clock tower and a semi-circular extension to the northern end. There is an Ordnance Survey flush bracket set into the wall to the right of the portico (SJ8445 : Flush bracket S058). For a closer view of the clock tower see SJ8445 : Clock tower on the Guildhall.
