The Memorial Hall

Exterior of The Old Malthouse Exterior of The Old Malthouse

The Memorial Hall is also known locally as the Malthouse, because that was its purpose when it was originally built for Lord Berwick in the mid-17th century. After the Great War, the building (apparently in a poor state of repair) was donated to the parish to be converted into a Memorial Hall to commemorate the fallen. It was officially opened on 31st December 1925.

In the 1930s and 1940s, regular Friday and Saturday dances were held in the hall. During the Second World War, it was a popular venue - not only for the locals, but also for the Americans stationed at RAF Atcham and the nurses from Berrington hospital. 

The hall has a sprung wooden floor, installed in the early 1960s. 

As well as the main room, there is a very comfortable smaller meeting room and a fully-equipped kitchen.
