Barnsley Town Hall
In the Classical styleThe Town Hall is a lovely grade II listed building designed by Sir Arnold Thornely. It was opened in 1933. The war memorial sculpted by John Tweed predates the town hall, was unveiled on 11 October 1925. I’ve given it some extra expression in the skies above and let loose with the splodges (technical term) of blossom in the formal gardens in front. I do quite enjoy the challenge of facing a building head on… trying to take in the full expanse of the architecture.
Suggestions & scenes you’d like to see…What do you think of my Barnsley Town Hall? I’d love any suggestions you might have for subject matter in this part of the world. I’ll be desperate to re-instate my travelling and go searching for inspiration first hand. But in the meantime i’ll be making a list of cultural sites, architectural gems and interesting little nooks… mapping out some visits for when the time finally comes to properly add Barnsley to my #PaintedCities.
