Old Tudor Town Hall Sandy

Tudor Style Hall, Sandy © TAB

Originally a Roman settlement, the rich soil deposited by the River Ivel, a tributary of the Ouse, has made the town of Sandy a thriving market-gardening centre since the early 17th century.

The oldest and most interesting buildings are located along the High Street, including a few old timber-framed buildings. The most unusual building is a large mock tudor Town Hall, circa 1906, which has never really been used as a town hall. Although its only a small village it does have its own Tourist Information Centre, located just behind the car park, off the High Street opposite the Anglican Parish church (dedicated to St Swithun).
