 Ashburton Town Hall - The Building
Ashburton Town Hall was built in 1850 by Lord Clinton to replace the 300 year old original wooden market hall. (a fantastic scale model of which can be found at Ashburton museum).

These days the town hall houses the Town Clerk's office, council meeting rooms and two large function rooms (booking details for these facilities are detailed in the left hand column of this page).
