Market Square The Old New Townhall – Heritage Buildings

Built, at his own cost, by the new Lord of the Manor, Coles-Child.  The bricks were from his own brickpit, from where Havelock Rec is now:  http://friendsofhavelockrec.org/about-the-brick-pit-of…/.

It seems that it was at least 3 different buildings kludged together… most of its life rented by an estate agents, included the police station with a cell, and housed the fire engine for a while. But the large upper room was never used for council meetings (making the ‘town hall’ name a misnomer).
“This was demolished in 1933 and replaced with the current neo-tudor buildings.” from london-footsteps.

It replaced a much smaller, more traditional market building in the centre of the square.
