Rochdale Town Hall

Project Info

JPS worked with H H Smith & Sons in the £20 million restoration of Rochdale Town Hall. Work included temporary works designs to allow the restoration of the existing Grade I listed building, the Magna Carta mural and extensive frescoes, with minimal intrusive works to protect this cultural site.

Work also included the temporary support of the 60 meter clock tower to allow the formation of new access to a retro fitted lift and extensive roof scaffolding to allow the restoration of the Great hall fleche.

The Grade I-listed building was designed by William H Crossland and originally opened in 1871 to symbolise Rochdale’s rich industrial standing in the textile trade. Its ornate stylings are rivalled only by the Palace of Westminster according to Historic England

The town hall was officially reopened to the public on March 3rd 2024. Further photographs from inside this historic building can be found here.
