Historic building recording and watching brief by P Copeland and I Froneman of CgMs prior to and during conversion works. The Town Hall is thought to have been constructed in 1708 on the site of an earlier chapel, although no evidence for this structure now visibly survives. Subsequent alterations to the interior have obscured much of the original fabric, little of which was revealed during the refurbishment. A written, drawn and photographic record of the structure was compiled, together with further observations made during alterations. The most significant features discovered were perhaps within the previously sealed basement areas, where the former public toilets dating from 1921–2 were found to have their fine decorative late art nouveau style tiling scheme largely intact.
