    Victoria Hall - Kidsgrove

    The foundation stone of the Town Hall was laid on 22 April 1897 by John Smith, the
    Council Chairman, and James Heath, local businessman and MP, who gave the land
    on which the Hall stood. The building, designed by Absolem Reade Wood, architect
    of Tunstall's Town Hall and Free Library, was officially opened on 29 March 1898.
    There are a series of coloured relief panels on this former town hall, built to
    commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.

    This former Town Hall is having a new roof done and the chance to have a look at
    the clock tower close-up had to be taken.

    The smaller relief panels represent the town's badge of three young kids between trees, a pun on the town's name.
