Appraisal

An attractive building of balanced proportions, which integrates well with the earlier town hall to south-west (22504135/WD-5632-22-145). Reasonably well restored, the building retains its original form with replacement fittings respecting the original integrity of the design. The building forms an integral component of the streetscape of The Mall.
