Town Hall. 1895 by Tree & Price (of London). Stone and flint. Slate roof with cupola on ridge. Elizabethan and Gothic Revival styles. 2 storeys. Heavily chequered to imitate the Guildhall immediately south. Elevation divided horizontally: plinth course, a row of 3-light double-transomed windows, a chequerwork band, and a further row of 3-light double-transomed windows. The lower 2 zones interrupted to south by an arched and ogeed porch entrance. The upper 2 zones have a central canted oriel. Tall gable to north in which is a 9-light panel-tracery perpendicular window under an ogeed round arch. Between each bay, of which there are nominally 9, rises stepped buttresses to the chequerworked parapet. 2 of these buttresses cut through the large Perpendicular window. INTERIOR. Grand but unadventurous. Entrance passage leads to staircase hall lined with small-framed panelling. Closed string staircase with splat balusters and square newels. Various rooms to first floor panelled for official use, including courtroom with complete fittings of 1895.
