The Guildhalls of Dartmouth

The Guildhalls of Dartmouth
By Ivor Smart

Correspondence in the ‘Dartmouth Chronicle’ once referred to the present Dartmouth Guildhall as the ‘ancient’ Guildhall of the town. Unfortunately, this is not the case, for the present building dates from 1849 only, as the stone over the entrance proclaims. To which building could the term ‘ancient Guildhall’ apply? There have been no less than four previous sites to which this term is applicable. Ivor Smart traces their history, providing a great deal of information about Dartmouth’s development over many centuries.
