Summary
The Municipal Buildings were created in 1923 by altering and extending the existing market buildings. The two wings of the existing hall were in-filled behind the ground floor colonnade and another storey added at the first floor. The fenestration of the existing wings was also altered.

 1922

Once a year the Glossop and District Photographic Society would hold its annual exhibition in the Town Hall. For a bit of fun Cliff Hales would occasionally make a quiz, with some "mystery" photos of Glossop, and a modest prize for the winner. This photo is from his 1974 quiz, photo courtesy of Cliff Hales.
