The story behind the renovation project.
Our Town Hall has stood for 200 years overlooking this ancient township. It is now restored to its former glory.This historic building has a long and fascinating history. It has been through demolition, dereliction, repairs and restoration.
In 1984 it became a Grade II listed building. Meaning it is protected because of its historical importance.Sadly, it fell into disrepair until Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council purchased it in 2015. They were determined to give the building a new lease of life.
“In 2016 a project group of Guisborough locals joined together with a vision for the Town Hall, their vision was for this ancient civic building to become a focal point serving the whole of East Cleveland. It took a lot of hard work, dedication and specialist skills to complete the restoration. As a result, the Town Hall now provides a gateway for tourism in and around Guisborough
A stylish interior with high ceilings, character features, and disabled access throughout, this wonderful pet-friendly dwelling offers spacious group accommodation, suitable for large family gatherings to celebrate weddings, birthdays, and special occasions.
Guisborough is a vibrant community of independent businesses all within walking distance, such as the renowned attraction of Guisborough Priory standing at 97-ft, the Guisborough Museum, local markets selling fresh and local produce, curious shops awaiting your perusal, and a fantastic selection of pubs and restaurants.
Award Winning Distillery
Shorty’s Gins was established in 2017 by Rachael Conisbee aka Shorty.
Nicknamed Shorty by her late father, it was the only name worthy of such a mammoth adventure. Being one of only a handful of female gin producers, Shorty started off making fruit gin liqueurs. And now proudly presents her very own Endeavour Gin.
Endeavour gin has received two awards; Gold at the Women’s 2021 Wine & Spirit Awards and Bronze at the 2020 World Gin Awards.Find out more
