The Old Town Hall

Drawing of the Old Town Hall

This is a drawing of Bridgend's first Town Hall 1788-1834 in what was (then) High Street (now it is Dunraven Place) It housed the provisions market under the arches, with a court house above and a cell or two under the steps. The Town Bell was housed in the small belfry atop of the court house.

After the traffic bridge and Park Street were constructed in 1821-1822, the hall was demolished having become both dilapidated and a "traffic obstacle."

From "The annals of South Glamorgan, by M R Spencer, 1914"
