Shirehampton Public Hall
Village hall. Dated 1904. By F Bligh Bond. Squared coursed
Lias, limestone ashlar dressings to the ground foor, roughcast
first-floor and left-hand gable stack, and Cornish slate
hipped and gabled roofs. Lateral open plan hall and projecting
front wings. Queen Anne style.
2 storeys; 4-window range. Symmetrical wings flank a
single-storey porch; a wide segmental open pediment and
modillion cornice on paired scrolled brackets has a keyed
oculus, over 2-leaf half-glazed doors; flanking 4-light
windows of 4/4-pane sashes, and a parapet ramped up over a
central panel inscribed SHIREHAMPTON PUBLIC HALL 1904.
The wings have stone ground floors with tripartite 8/8-pane
sashes flanked by 6/6-pane sashes, and a first-floor bowed
3-light oriel below the eaves with flanking 4/4-pane sashes.
The raised hall to the back has 2 dormers with paired 9/9-pane
sashes, and a central square louvred lantern with a swept
pyramid roof. To the right is a 3-storey tower with an
ogee-capped roof of striped slates and red stone tiles. The
hall gables have bowed oriels.
INTERIOR: central hallway with a dogleg stair to the right
with cast-iron balusters, and a plain waggon-roofed hall to
the rear. A notable example of a building in this style, by a
good local architect.
