Municipal Chambers, The Octagon

Noted Victorian Architect R. A. Lawson designed this handsome Italianate structure in 1878. Completed in 1880, it was greatly modified over the years, with the removal of it's front steps to first floor level in1939 and the lopping of the 47 metre bell tower to just above clock level in 1963. Its full restoration was completed in 1989.
