Bampton's History

Riverside Hall History

This hall, by the side of the Batherm bridge, was built in 1903 as a Drill Hall with a range of military connections over the years. In the 1950's it became the Public Hall, owned by Bampton Town Council, and in recent years was renamed the Riverside Hall.
