1890

NEW SWINDON TOWN HALL BUILT> By 1890, the New Swindon Local Board had plans to build their new public offices in York Place. This location, halfway between the Railway Village and the Hill, was thought by some to be "both psychologically and strategically an excellent position for the new town to establish a landmark building" especially as it was clearly visible from the Old town.

Brightwen Binyon of Ipswich was chosen to design the new building, eventually deciding on the edifice as it stands today. It includes a 90 ft high clock tower and is built in the style of neo-17th-century Dutch architecture. It became a show-piece of New Swindon, being constructed mainly of brick with stone dressings, a balcony, gables, finials and cupolas. The inside includes a spacious hall with pillars and arches and an elegant sweeping staircase rising to a suite of offices.

These offices were initially occupied by the Board's senior officials and those of the County Court when in 1891 it became the main Swindon Town Hall, taking over many court functions from the Old Town Hall.
