Guildhall, now municipal offices, originally subscription
rooms and school. Dated 1849. Local limestone rubble with
Bathstone dressings; slate roof.
EXTERIOR: Restrained Tudor style. 2 storeys. Main block has
symmetrical 2:2:2-window front with an extra bay to left in
taller block; all stone 3-light mullion-and-transom windows,
now containing plate glass. Centre 2-window section breaks
forward slightly to contain large central Tudor-arch doorway,
with the date of 1849 carved onto a plaque directly above.
First-floor windows now converted to doorways with upper
lights retained as mullioned overlights, and secondary balcony
shelters main doorway below. Gable over. Balcony and steps
both sides have ornate cast-iron railings. String course at
first-floor level interrupted by 2 large weathered buttresses
each side. Main roof is gable-ended and steps up to a higher
level over left end bay. Front and end gables with shaped
kneelers and coping and 2 ventilators with small spires
projecting through the ridge of the main block. Right end
contains a first-floor 4-light window similar to those on the
front.
INTERIOR: Not inspected.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: A tall stone boundary wall extends
westward from the right-hand end and includes a stone
Tudor-arched doorway.
This building is one of a good group of buildings dating from
the second quarter of the C19 lining New Road (now Victoria
Road), which was built in 1825 to enable, for the first time,
horse-drawn carriages in and out of town.
