Town Clerk’s Office, Church Street – 1920s

Edward, Prince of Wales, standing in his vehicle (far left) as it slowly passes along Church Street during his visit in the late 1920s.

The building in the centre is the Town Clerk’s Office which provided the only access to the Guildhall building whaich was, in these days, the Town Hall. If you look up to the rear of today’s Guildhall, you’ll see the doors that provided that access still in situ high on the building which is today accessed from below via spiral staircases.
