The Corn Exchange building, Albert Street, Derby
The grade II listed Corn Exchange building on the corner of Albert Street and Exchange Street opened in 1862. Although the Corn Exchange Company was wound up in 1881 the building was still used as a corn exchange and, from 1897, was also used as the location of the Palace Theatre of Varieties. After the First World War, the building was converted into a dance hall. In 1929 the Derby Evening Telegraph, then known as the Derby Daily Telegraph, took over the building, which was re-named Northcliffe House. The newspaper moved to new purpose-built premises on Meadow Road in 1981. The Corn Exchange building was divided into separate retail and office units, while the main body of the hall has been used as a snooker club for a number of years.
