Town Hall

Have I mentioned that Barrow is home to one of the great Victorian Gothic buildings of England? One that could stand proud in the company of civic glories like those of Manchester or Leeds?

One doesn’t like to introduce something like this too early in the proceedings of a warts-and-all portrait, lest one be thought to be in the pay of the Marketing Department. But it is magnificent, and that clock tower is a landmark over a very wide area. Barrow was the dream of James Ramsden the Railway Baron, and round the parapet of the tower are a number of horned sheep heads in turrets. Ram’s Den – geddit?
