A selection of amateur photographs are shown below to show the Town House in full use and empty of people.
We hope this gives a flavour of what you can do with our fine old building:-

The Town House stands in the centre of the village, directly opposite from our church in a quiet road. To the rear of the building is a car park with open playing fields behind that. The road is very quiet and many wedding photographs are taken with the photographer safely standing on the road with the guests to set against the back drop of the Town House. For the more 'formal ' photographs, our old church is directly opposite providing similarly attractive back-drops.

The two external stair cases make an ideal 'frame' for photographs with the building appearing to 'wrap around' the small 'court yard' to the front of the building. Being a very old building, it was built to 'human scale' and it does not 'dwarf' people unlike some larger, more impersonal buildings. You feel a part of the building, not just and 'ant' passing through.

Many events make use of both floors of the town house and the hirers often choose to decorate the staircase as seen here. The building has three entrances, the 'main entrance' is to the rear which leads into this entrance lobby.

This wide-angle photograph shows the many exposed beams and high ceiling of the Main Hall on the first floor. We have a large collection of matching tables and chairs available to the hirer. These hirers chose to arrange these tables into units of about 10 to 12 people leaving plenty of space between each but the long, open area allows the hirer to 'pack in' many more guests, if required.

Many weddings occur in the 'Undercroft' and its quite superb old beams make the perfect setting for a fun and meaningful day. As you can see, it's a 'warm' and 'friendly' space offering an intimate atmosphere.

The first floor Kitchen is large enough to prepare almost any meal for the number of guest which can be accommodated. Some people choose to do their own catering but others call in professional services. The large, stainless steel units and work surfaces, 'industrial sized' cooker and ample refrigerator make this a practical, useable space. It can be 'shut off' from the main hall with double doors and it can be accessed without disturbing the proceedings in the Main Hall via it's own access to the main staircase.

The main hall has a high ceiling with low and attractive beams. The tables can be arranged in many ways to accommodate more people or to keep that open and spacious feeling. Again, many guests choose to decorate our beams as you can see in the photos

The Ground Floor 'Committee' room is the smallest space available. Many 'parties' choose to use this for a Bar or for teas/coffees so that these can be prepared and while the rest of the rooms are being used. The Town House has a license to serve alcohol on both floors. Please make arrangements with the booking secretary should you wish to serve alcohol. Directly to the rear of this room is the smaller, ground floor kitchen. This room can be accessed from the main 'Undercroft' but this Committee Room, too, can be accessed directly from the outside without the need to disturb events occurring in the Undercroft or any any other part of the building
