Brading Old Town Hall

Standing next to St. Mary's Church Brading is the grade II listed, Old Town Hall thought to date from about 1729 when reference was made to building a New Town Hall, Market House and Prison.

The open arcade on the ground floor is thought to have been the butchers' shambles for the town's market. Today it houses the town's unusual five hole stocks and whipping post.
