History The Town Hall The beautiful early Regency civic building that stands today was created in 1808, replacing a pre-existent structure dating back to the 17th century. It was designed by none other than the affluent Bath-based architect Thomas Baldwin, who created some of that city's finest civic establishments, The Guildhall and The Pump Room. Devizes Town Hall enjoys a prestigious Grade II* listing. The Corn Exchange A little younger than The Town Hall, this fascinating structure was created in 1857 as a base for trading commodities in the centre of the rapidly expanding market town. Its stunning façade and architectural significance has gained it a Grade II listing.
