The Town House (which means Community or Peoples House) is one of the oldest buildings in Barley dating back to the 16th century. A listed Grade 2* building it has housed a school, villagers and even a fire engine in its colourful history and now serves as Barley’s much loved village hall.     

Over the years it has undergone various refurbishments to provide a wonderful setting for all sorts of events. In 1996 the Town House was the first village hall in the country to be licensed for civil marriages and the first marriage took place on May 11th that year.
