History of Waverton Village Hall

Following the transfer of the village school to its present site in April 1966, the

Parish Council leased the old school building opposite St. Peter’s Church from the

Westminster Estate at a rent of £200 p.a. for three years, increasing to £300 p.a.

thereafter The building started operating as Waverton’s first “official” Village Hall

on 1 st .October 1967, run by a committee composed of representatives from village

organisations plus two members from the Parish Council – an arrangement which

continues in the running of the present Hall.

The first Hall operated for over 20 years, providing a daily venue for a

Nursery School and a weekly venue for both the Church Sunday School and a

Youth Club. It was used regularly for a variety of other activities, including

badminton, ballet, Brownies, Cubs, Guides and Scouts, as well as catering for

meetings, jumble sales, parties and village dances.

A rapidly increasing village population highlighted the need for a an improved

facility and early in 1987, as owners of the former Victoria Mill and its site situated

on the canal at Egg Bridge, the Parish Council sold both building and site to

“Barratts” for housing development, for the sum of £330,000 This area is now the

Mill Quays estate.

Having obtained a thirty year lease in 1975 from the Westminster Estate on the land

known as the “Queen’s Field”, the Parish Council used some of the “Barratts”

money to purchase a piece of this land freehold from the Estate. It was on this piece

of land that the present Hall was built with the remaining “Barratts” money.

All village organisations were consulted about their requirements for facilities in the

new building, including the local Doctors’ Practice formerly

housed in a private dwelling, resulting in the design of the present Hall..

This new Hall was officially opened by the Duke of Westminster on

13 th . September 1989, having been in active use from some months earlier.

A plaque commemorating the official opening can be seen in the main entrance hall

of the building.
