Glossop Town Hall complex

Find out more about the Glossop Town Hall Complex and our plans to return the buildings to public use

Glossop Town Hall and Market were built by Bernard Edward Howard, the 12th Duke of Norfolk. The foundation stone was laid in 1938. Municipal Buildings started out as the open fish market part of the current market building before various alterations and additions over the years.

The Municipal Buildings is used mainly for office accommodation; the Market Hall is currently empty whilst work to modernise and renovate the facilities takes place; and the Town Hall was used as a public hall/venue but has been out of use since 2008 due to accessibility issues and limited use.

All of the buildings are listed and were the subject of an extensive public consultation exercise as part of the Glossop Design and Place Making Strategy which expresses the aspirations of the Glossop public.

We are working to bring these iconic buildings back in to community use and secure them for the future.

Projects to replace the roofs at the Town Hall, the Municipal Buildings and Market Hall have now been completed.

In November 2021 we were awarded £2m in funding from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership via their Getting Building fund. This funding, together with the Council's investment, is being used on the £7m project to restore and modernise these buildings and return them to public use.

Construction work will start in Autumn in 2022 and is expected to be complete by early 2024.
