History

Formerly the Town Hall. Built 1892, the opening ceremony held on Christmas Eve of that year. Foundation stones laid by Messrs. R.H. Spencer and David Price. The building replaced the earlier C19 town hall which stood on the same site. Now used as a club.

Exterior

Construction of Pennant stone with Forest of Dean ashlar detail. Artificial half-hipped slate roof. Main two-storey block in Gothic style, with lower angled block to left, facing Morgan Street. Main block is symmetrical, seven bays long, the three alternate bays with dormer gables. Plinth. Moulded ashlar frieze at eaves level, set on shallow brackets. Centre bay has Gothic arched doorway; moulded ashlar arch on short red granite shafts with leaf capitals. C20 doors with plain overlight. Spandrels of arch filled with red ashlar (or painted stucco) chequerwork with inset small patterned tiles. Over door is shallow balcony on elongated stone consoles: ashlar balustrade with small open arches. Three four-light mullion and transome windows each side of entry; plain glazing. First floor has outer windows arranged in triplets: large nine-light mullion and transome windows set below dormer gables, narrow flanking three-light windows. The windows are flanked by shallow piers, supported on short corbels: ashlar tympanae, each with inset roundel. Gabled centre nine-light mullion and transome window has arched lights; ashlar tympanae with three roundels. Moulded stone copings to gables.

Three bay elevation of two storeys; centre bay angled and gabled, with wide pedimented eight-light mullion and transome window to each storey. Right bay with narrow window to each storey; brick jambs and stone lintels. Left bay has three similar windows to first floor: Similar window to ground floor right with door to left.
