Todmorden Town Hall - about the venue

Todmorden's civic pride

The town hall is considered one of the finest municipal buildings in the country with a frontage of 53 feet at the County Bridge End, extending 130 feet to the apse and measuring 67 feet to the top of the pediment.

One interesting external feature of the town hall is the pediment. The fine carved stonework has two central female figures on a pedestal. The left hand one represents Lancashire (cotton spinning industry) and the right hand one Yorkshire (engineering and agriculture).

The striking mosaic inside the building, set into the corridor floor, includes the Todmorden coat of arms together with the motto 'By Industry We Prosper'.
