Other Information

  • Sheffield's Town Hall was designed partly to fit in with the now demolished St Paul's Church that stood nearby. Ironically though, planned extensions of the Town Hall necessitated its inspirational neighbours demolition.
  • In the end the Peace Gardens were built where the Town Hall extension would have stood instead in 1938, a nick name reflecting the Munich Agreement of that year. The extension was cancelled thanks to the outbreak of World War 2 and the Peace Gardens have stood there ever since with their nickname becoming official only in 1985.
  • The baroque dome that tops the tallest point of the building has a bronze statue of the ancient god Vulcan holding a torch.
