Morley Town Hall
Morley Town Hall
Construction of the town hall began in 1892 and was completed in 1895 when it became the home of Morley Borough Council. This ended, after local government restructuring in 1974. At that time Morley became a part of Leeds. Morleians were strongly opposed to their Borough's incorporation into the new Metropolitan District of Leeds and in 2000 a town council was established, partially reversing this situation, although the council no longer governs West and East Ardsley.

On August 18th 1961 a fire raged through Albert Mills, next door to the town hall. The intensity of the fire was such that the dome of the clock tower was destroyed along with the mill. The dome was rebuilt the following year at a cost that is said to be greater than the original cost of building the town hall.
