NOTES: The Guildhall dates back to the 15th century, built by the master mason John Croxton from 1411-c. 1429. It was restored in 1864-1868 and re-roofed 1953-1954 by Giles Gilbert Scott. The two-storey porch of 1425-1430, survived the Great Fire, was added to in 1671, but its lower storey was incorporated into a new porch designed by George Dance the Younger in 1788-1789. On the western side is Dance's plain office range of 1787-1791, which was demolished and replaced by a seven-storey block by Richard Gilbert Scott in 1969-1975, as part of the new precinct. To the right is the Irish Chamber, built 1824-1825 by Joseph Walker, which was retained.
