Tiverton Town Hall
Tiverton Town Hall

The Town Hall, built in 1864 to replace an ancient 1615 edifice, fronts Fore Street and St Andrews Street. In it is transacted the municipal business; county court, magistrate's court, police headquarters with cells are here, and there is accommodation in the shape of offices for all the official business of the town. It is a handsome building and contains in the hall portraits of: Kings George I, II and III; Viscount Palmerston KG, GCB, who represented Tiverton for 30 years and who had amusing encounters with a local butcher at each nomination; W. N. Massey, MP; and a fine costly bust of "Pam", as Lord Palmerston was called, which was given by W. North Row, Esq., a sometime mayor. The cost of the building was £12,000 and it is one of the most compact combinations in architecture for a small town hall that we know. The architect was a Mr H. Lloyd of Bristol.
