More about the origins of this iconic building…
Helmsley Town Hall is part of the rich Temple Moore legacy in the Ryedale area. Temple Moore was an English architect who had been articled to George Gilbert Scott Jr and whose designs were mainly in Gothic Revival style. It was built in 1901 in the Queen Anne style and is protected by a Grade II listing.
In 1958 the then Earl of Feversham gave the building to the population of Helmsley parish, originally to serve as a Courtroom and to provide a place for the community to pursue recreational activities.
Originally run by a management committee, Helmsley Town Hall is now managed by a Board of Trustees drawn from the local community.
