The Mayor's Office

Town Hall Tours

Every year, the Mayor of Pendle conducts guided tours of Nelson Town Hall.

Tricia Judson, the Mayor's Attendant, is the guide for the free, two hour-long journey through history.

Visitors are shown the old Police cells, the Council Chamber and civic insignia before having tea and biscuits in the Members' Room.

As well as seeing behind the scenes of the Town Hall, you can discover how the present day Pendle Council runs and what the Mayor's job entails.

Groups, such as Women's Institutes, Brownies, Scouts and voluntary organisations, as well as individuals, are all welcome.

Up to 20 people can be accommodated on each tour.

If you are interested in coming along on a Town Hall tour, please contact the Mayor's Secretary, Fiona Standring,
