Northampton Guildhall

The Town Hall, Victorian Gothic at its most confident, was built by Edward Godwin c 1860, when he was only 28. The exterior is ennobled with sculptures of kings and queens; the interior is invaded with local dignitaries, almost lost amid the imitation Early English foliage on the cast-iron columns.
