Can't help but admire this wonderful Grade II listed building in the centre of Barrow. Dating back to 1887, the red sandstone gives it a very impressive look. The dominating tower ensures that it stands out as one of the tallest buildings in town.

We were given an impromptu tour (courtesy of Jake) of this beautiful building, again, as we found with other places in & around Barrow, so much history

Local people sometimes take this wonderful building for granted. A work of art on our doorstep.Hire for weddings etc. Just nice to walk around the outside of this lovely building admiring the Victorian craftsmanship is enough.

I haven't been on a tour but the outside is very impressive and in actual fact Barrow has more than its fair share of wonderful buildings. This one however is stunning when viewed from the car park at the 'rear' and would not look out...More
