St Mary’s Hill
Council business had been carried on since the Middle Ages in a room over the gateway on the bridge; when this started causing traffic problems, agreement was reached with the Turnpike Trustees to rebuild on the current site. The Cecil family part funded the building, which was completed in 1779.
The original designer may have been a cabinet maker called Henry Tatam, as there are similarities between this building and his own house in Barn Hill. The northern elevation, around the corner to the left as you view the front, is almost identical to this one, giving a symmetrical look to the building. If you look up between the top tier of windows, you can see a cartouche on which are the arms of Stamford.
Access: There are stairs to access the venue. Telephone the Town Hall for more information
