Town Hall, Colne, Lancashire
Colne is a very old town, which was granted the status of Municipal Borough many years ago. A progressive and positive attitude was always shown by the council: the town even had its own electric trams, as well as this fine Town Hall. But in the ill-advised local government reorganisation of 1974, Colne lost its autonomy and became part of the Borough of Pendle, which included not only the larger but much newer town of Nelson to the west, but also the small Yorkshire towns of Barnoldswick and Earby to the North.
