Abandoned town hall – #MySundayPhoto
I do love a good town hall. I’m not entirely sure what happens in them, but I imagine it involves a lot of paperwork.
This lovely building stands empty in Staines town centre. It’s right on the riverfront, with a clocktower, huge bold red door and old fashioned phone boxes to each side. And those windows! So beautiful.
Whenever I see it I feel sad that it’s been deemed no use to anyone anymore. A bit of googling tells me locals are petitioning for it to be re-opened as an Arts Centre, and since it’s been empty there’s been a fire, squatters and several planning permission submissions.
I wonder what will become of it?
