Todd Building Christ’s College / former County Hall / Wesleyan Chapel

History of the Todd Building, former County Hall

This site was, at the end of the 19th century, a Wesleyan Chapel.

View from County Hall, May 1929 (MoC 186/54)

Now part of Christ’s College, this was the County Hall, built 1913-14 by H H Dunn.  Christ’s used Lyster, Grillet and Harding to adapt the building for college use in 1985-7 by adding a smoked-glass drum with spiral staircase.
