Former Town Hall, Cavendish Street, Manchester
Former Town Hall, Cavendish Street, Manchester
With a majestic portico of four fluted Greek Doric columns surmounted by a pediment. By Richard Lane, 1830-31. Grade II listed.
Built as the Chorlton-on-Medlock Town Hall and Dispensary, in 1970 everything behind the facade was removed for a new building for Manchester Polytechnic, now Manchester Metropolitan University.
A plaque records that the building hosted the fifth Pan-African Conference in 1945, decisions at which "led to liberation of African counties".
