Devizes Town Hall Wiltshire 13th July 2024
Devizes Town Hall is a Thomas Baldwin designed building constructed between 1806 and 1808. It has a dignified charm that surpasses expectation.
The first municipal building in Devizes was a medieval structure in the New Port area, a district inside the outer bailey of Devizes Castle, completed in the mid-15th century. A second structure, a guildhall with an adjoining council house, was completed in the mid-16th century: this structure accommodated the courts and also provided storage for the town's archives.
A third structure, a brick building in the centre of St John's Street known as the Yarn Hall, was completed 1575, rebuilt in 1616 and then remodelled in the neoclassical style in 1629. The design involved a symmetrical main frontage with five bays facing south down St John's Street; there was a colonnade with Tuscan order columns on the ground floor and the central bay featured a doorway which was flanked by full-height Corinthian order columns supporting a pediment.
