Allonby Beck and Working Men's Reading Room
Allonby Beck and Working Men's Reading Room
The red brick building is marked on the second edition of the Ordnance Survey six-inch map as Working Men's Reading Room. It was funded by Joseph Pease MP, a wealthy Quaker industrialist, and built in 1862 to a design by Thomas Waterhouse, who later designed major buildings including the Natural History Museum in London. It had fallen into disrepair but now seems to have been restored for use as a house.
