Rochdale Town Hall is widely regarded as one of the finest Victorian town halls in Britain. It was completed in 1871 at a cost of £155,000. The Grand Staircase, the magnificent Great Hall, frescos, stained glass, statuary, ceramics and paintings all add to the grandeur of an exuberant expression of civic pride.
