Loftus Town Hall


The Town Hall is located on the High Street in Loftus. It was originally built for the Earl of Zetland and opened in 1879. The building has clock faces on the 3 sides of the tower, but not on the south side, as the residents of South Loftus were reluctant to contribute to the cost! The Town Hall remained in the ownership of the Zetland family until it was purchased by the former Loftus Urban District Council for £2000 in 1948.[1] Loftus Town Hall is a Grade II listed building.
