Wonderful historic photos you have. When was the Priory demolished?
Added by Peter Lapper on 18 August 2015
Work on building the new Town Hall began in October 1938 and the first Council meeting was held on 17 April 1941, with the staff moving in on 16 January 1941. As can be seen in the above photograph, the semi-circular design allowed for it to be built around the old Priory building

The staff did not have far to go into the new building, just a short walk away !

My great grandparents owned the Priory in the late 1800s - Alexander and Constance Taylor. He died in 1900. I'm told their garden was 5 acres! I have a few early photos of the house. Any more information on that period would be appreciated.
