    I first covered Clydebank's town hall back in January of 2010, when it was still half-live and attached to the absolutely gorgeous public baths next door. Now, sadly, the baths have been half-demolished, and the town hall is being refurbished.

    So when Dweeb phoned up to tell me that the tower was now possible, how could I resist a revisit? First, in through the catacombs:

    Next a bit of a surprise - they've ripped half the stage away:

    It does mean it's now possible to see the fantastic main hall now, which was securely behind a fire curtain on my last visit:

    Check out the minstrel's gallery in a dining hall :)

    Another hall, with the loudest flooring ever - it sounded like several gunshots every step!

    Next into the highheidyin's quarters, with everything carefully protected with platic and bubblewrap:

    As well as a town hall, this building housed the courts:

    The courtroom itself, stripped out sadly:

    Next, up the tower:

    To the bells:

    Which are controlled on a lower level by a brilliant keyboard device, complete with music stand:

    Also in the tower is the clock mechanism which drives four faces:

    While poking about in the attic, I also found the trapdoor leading to the flagpole - it was very exposed with lots of people about, so I didn't have time for a picture, but inside on the floor was what I think is the official flag of Clydebank:

    Next, what else does a courthouse have? Cells, of course :)

    Finally, a stop-off in the baths - only the main pool is left, but at least they've saved the old cast-iron turnstile and a slipper bath for posterity.
