Information about the Hall

The Hall was built on its present site in 1971 with proceeds from the sale of the Collin's Hall, Wellow (£978), a grant from the Ministry of Education (£3000) and Bathavon R.D.C. (£147) together with substantial village fund raising (£1436) and cost in its day approximately £5400 to build and equip. The land on which the Hall is situated, together with use of the driveway by which it is accessed, was generously donated to Wellow Parish Council by the late Commander Christopher Hall. The Hall was further extended in 1976 by the addition of an annexe for storage, the cost of which amounted to £1775.
