Skipton Town Hall

Skipton Museum and Gallery

Skipton Town Hall was built in 1862, on the site of the former vicarage of Holy Trinity church. The main hall was altered, with its height increased, in 1878 and was run as a public function room by a private company.

When Skipton Urban District Council was created in 1895, it bought the building to be the Town Hall, replacing the 'Old Town Hall' on Sheep Street. Late in the 19th century, a canopy of glass and ornate wrought iron was added on the front, but this was demolished during the 1950s. An extension was built in 1935 to increase office space.
