Council House, Salisbury

1883

A framed oil painting copy of the Council House in Salisbury, painted by H. Hussey.

This painting shows the Council House before the 17th century alterations.

From 1719, the Mayor’s annual feast was held here as well as the council’s meetings. This ended in disaster in 1780 when a large fire broke out after the feast and destroyed much of the council house.
