Part of the old Clwyd Shire Hall in Mold
Part of the old Clwyd Shire Hall in Mold
This magnificent example of good 1960's architecture was the old Shire Hall or county hall building for the then new county of Clwyd in the 1974 local governemnt reorganisation. It really must have been something to work here in the late '60's and 1970's. Now it houses Flintshire's local governemnt administration - but the building is massive, this being just the front block, with a further arrangement of wings and attached blocks behind. Furthermore it forms just a part of a complex with the magistrates or law courts and the theatre on the hill, the whole forming a huge civic centre type 'ghetto' - totally detached from the town of Mold. Geographically detached anyway.
