Colchester Town Hall

The town hall site has been the focus of civic duties for more than 800 years. Colchester's first town hall, called the Moot Hall, was built in 1160. The second town hall was built in 1844 and was a three-storey structure with a stone-faced front. By 1870 there were concerns its foundations were not stable.

John Belcher designed the present town hall, which was chosen after a competition in 1897. Building work began in 1898 and the building was opened by Prime Minister Lord Rosebery in May 1902.
