[quote="tilly"]The white building in the first photograph was a tobacco wholesalers many years ago.It then turned into an antiques centre It was originally a Georgian ball room,when i was in there last there were still traces of decoration from the original building I wonder if there is a preservation order on this building on even a plaque outside?

Would that have been Hirsts ?.

Thanks for that buffaloskinner i think someone should keep an eye on the Assembly Rooms to me its a very important building.The way things are going it could be replaced with a concrete block..

This is a photo showing Waterloo House on Crown Street that I took on March 13 2018. The brown building on the right rear is fronting Assembly Street.

To think the Assembly Rooms were built only two years after the White Cloth Hall i think a blue plaque is warranted.I also think it should be listed its in an area prone to demolition if not listed it could be at risk.
