Fact­file: Northamp­ton Guild­hall

Model Rail (UK) - - Gothic Modelling -

The Guild­hall was de­signed by Ed­ward God­win and built be­tween 1861-1864 in the pop­u­lar Gothic Re­vival style of the pe­riod. To­day, it’s Grade II* listed. The façade was orig­i­nally sym­met­ri­cal with a cen­tral bell tower. A later ex­ten­sion to the west, de­signed by Matthew Hold­ing in 1892, was ren­dered sym­pa­thet­i­cally in a match­ing style but the sym­me­try was lost. I have cho­sen to model just the 1864 building to save time, space and my san­ity!
