SJ9698 : Stalybridge Town Hall Portico

taken 5 years ago, near to Stalybridge, Tameside, Great Britain

Stalybridge Town Hall Portico
Stalybridge Town Hall Portico
The portico is all that remains of the former Stalybridge Town Hall at the prominent junction of Trinity Street, Market Street, Waterloo Road and Stamford Street.,

When Stalybridge became part of Tameside Metropolitan Borough in 1974, the Grade II listed Town Hall which had been built in 1831 became redundant. The building, apart from its west-facing entrance portico was demolished in the late 1980s.

The Greek revival portico now strikes a lonely pose at the north end of Victoria Bridge, but it is still of historic and architectural interest. The area behind this is landscaped with trees and low growing shrubs.
