History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
A Guildhall existed on this site since about 1160, but the current building is almost entirely a product of the late 15th century, probably around 1466. The building is entered through a massive oaken door, carved by a local joiner named Nicholas Baggett in 1592 and embellished with an ornate pattern resembling a peacock's fan.
