20/10/71 Town Hall
Town hall. 1857 by EB Lamb. Banded red and gault brick with
flint detailing of diamond and half-diamond lozenges arranged
randomly over entire wall surface. Slate and lead roofs.
2 storeys. West face with 5 tall round-headed casements with
glazing bars. Moulded brick and York stone parapet. Elevated
hipped roof. North and south returns both with one similar
casement and a pediment over parapet. East side with recessed
entrance developing into a two-stage tower with clock faces to
cardinal points and an open lantern on a domed lead roof.
INTERIOR: assembly room at ground floor under roof of arched
braces and king post trusses. Stone staircase leads to council
chamber at first floor: raised rectangular roof light. The
Town Hall is a very finely detailed eccentric design which
brilliantly takes advantage of the irregular site and
dominates the centre of Eye.
