Huddersfield Chronicle (23/Dec/1854) - Netherton: The Odd Fellows' Hall

The following is a transcription of a historic newspaper article and may contain occasional errors.


The Odd Fellows' Hall.

This edifice, which has progressed to the "covering in," shows such signs of instability as to cause great apprehensions that it will have to be taken down. The foundation has given way and the structure is much shaken, many of the window-sills are broken, and the building, especially the middle portion of it, is likely to fall. Of course, all operations have been suspended, and the committee held a meeting on the subject on Wednesday eight last, at the Rose and Crown Inn ; James Wrigley, Esq. occupied the chair, and the chief point for consideration was whether to take the building down and probe for a better foundation, or remove to another site altogether. The conclusion come to was to refer the business to Mr. Pritchett, the architect. This was agreed to, and that gentleman's opinion is now being waited for.
