Bury Town Hall
Bury Town Hall
The town hall, from Knowsley Street. The 2012 Olympic flag is flying next to the Union Flag.

Bury's Town Hall was officially opened by HM Queen Elizabeth II on the 22nd October 1954, some 15 years after the foundation stone was laid by the Earl of Derby in 1939. The design of the building was the result of an architectural competition.

Work commenced on site in 1938 and, despite the war, continued until 1940, by which time only the outer shell had been completed. It remained in this incomplete state with only the basement being in use (as an air raid shelter), until work was able to re-commence post-war, in 1947. The building is now the home of the Borough Council and also accommodates the Elizabethan Suite which hosts both official and social functions.
