Minehead Town Council - Wellington Square

The Council Offices

Minehead Town Council moved to new premises at the Council Offices, 3 Summerland Road, Minehead TA24 5BP on Thursday 20 April 2017.

Minehead’s Town Hall was formerly at the old Market House building in The Parade (formerly known as Puddle Street), in the centre of the town. This is a Grade II Listed building, designed by W .J Tamlyn, and it was completed in 1902. It was constructed as a covered market to replace an earlier and much smaller market house building on the site, and was one of a number of improvements made to Minehead at the turn of the new century. The Market House building is now home to a café and a retail unit with the former Town Council offices on its mezzanine and upper floors, including the Council Chamber where all meetings were held. The year 2002 marked the centenary of the building of the Market House. In some early photographs, you can still see the balcony which was constructed around the Clock Tower above the Market House.
