Old Town Hall, Market Place #1
Old Town Hall, Market Place #1
A grade II* listed building, dated 1785, in ashlar sand-stone, a central wooden clock tower with cupola and lead-covered dome with weather-vane. There was a jail at the rear and assembly room above.
LBS No:- 342669
A blue plaque on the building, which I failed to spot, reads:- Town Hall and Assembly Rooms. The Town Hall built in 1785, designed by Bernard Hartley, served as Council Chamber, Magistrates Court, prison, bank, fire station and public hall. Assembly Rooms added 1882 by Perkin and Bulmer.
