Wallington’s New Town Hall in 1934

Beddington and Wallington was a local government district in north east Surrey, England, between 1915 and 1965. The offices were initially based at 37 Manor Road, the former offices of Wallington Parish Council.

Then in 1929 the organisation purchased a house on Woodcote Road, Wallington, as the site of a new town hall.

The architect Robert Atkinson designed the new £40,000 building, which was formally opened on 21 September 1934 by Sir Richard Meller, M.P. He was a former member of the Wallington Parish Council.

Along with the Mayors and councillors from many neighbouring councils, and a good turnout of local people, there was also a guard of honour of veterans from World War I (still known as the Great War at that time, before World War II).
