1006 : Todmorden Pediment


Last Sunday we took a trip up the valley to Todmorden. This amazing building is Todmorden Town Hall which was built in 1874/5 to a design by the London architect, John Gibson. Gibson was also responsible for designing the Todmorden Unitarian Church and Dobroyd Castle - photographs of both of these I will be featuring over the next couple of days. The Town Hall is currently undergoing restoration work, hence the scaffolding around the lower parts of the building.

Thanks Alan. This is my first attempt at a comment whilst on the road using our I-Pad. We are in Salmon Arm on the Shushwap Lake on our way to Calgary. Hope it works!

That's a beautiful building, fantastic architecture. They don't build 'em like that anymore.

Such a grand building for a not-very-large town. Those Victorians thought BIG!
