THAT's your local arts centre? Whew, you lucky man! Is the white clock tower an add-on to the original structure.

Good to see the Newton statue - lends ``gravity'' to the shot!!

I think David, It was built at the time, It was known as the Town Hall.
The dooking hall was the 1st jail in Grantham, and still has the bars in it.

I showed my hubby your blog, and he swears he's seen this building before (he's been to England many more times than I).
