Three views of Chesterfield town hall

Chesterfield town hall is quite an impressive looking building. It sits atop a hill overlooking a small piece of parkland that has been landscaped to provide a good view of the structure’s front facade.

Chesterfield Town Hall

It’s built in a classical style, and was erected in the1930s. It’s very different in style to the town hall building of nearby Sheffield, and a number of other towns and cities through the neigbouring county of South Yorkshire.

The central section of the stucture is formed from a series of columns suporting a triangular roof. I’m not especially knowlegeable about classical architecture, so can’t say exactly what style it’s in, but it’s impressive nonetheless. Caught in good light, the structure casts wonderful, contrasty shadows around the arched entranceways.
