A brief History of Cleobury Mortimer Parish Hall
The Parish Hall was built by the Oddfellows Society in 1892 on the site of an old Malthouse. Built of red brick with mullioned windows and a bellcote, it has a weather vane which is a builder’s hod. This is a rebus – a play on the word ODD-fellows. It was a favourite meeting place over the years but during the Second World War it was used as a collection point for the Kings Shropshire Light Infantry (K.S.L.I.) and eventually for storing sugar.
In 1948 the Hall and two adjacent cottages were bought for £1250 by the Parish Council for the people of Cleobury Mortimer and it is now run by an elected Management Committee. Over the last ten years there have been major refurbishments, and there are currently plans to relocate the toilets nearer the entrance to the Hall. There is a large kitchen and great dance floor. It is one of the largest halls in the area.
