Two eighteenth-century houses were converted between 1905 and 1906 to create Penrith Town Hall. Built in 1792 in the style of Robert Adam. The conversion, to the design of a local man J. J. Knewstubb, provoked lively debate and co-founder of the National Trust, Canon Rawnsley, pleaded successfully for the retention of several features. Today it functions as the Council Chamber and offices of Eden District Council.
