Photo Information
Staines Town Hall, a Grade II listed building designed by John Johnson, dates to 1880. In its time it has hosted council offices, a magistrates court, rock concerts, been an arts centre and a pub. Its last use was as the background for a TV Car Insurance ad, the one with Phillip Schofield on a zip-wire!

The two phone boxes (type K6, designed in 1935 by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott and made by Cannon Co. and Lion Foundry Cast Iron) are also listed Grade II.

The war memorial was unveiled in 1920 with further names added after the Second World, in the Memorial Gardens and moved more recently to the Market Square. It too is listed Grade II.

Oops! Slight mistake - the TV ad was for webuyanycar.com

Sorry about that.

Some people call me 'strange'.
I prefer 'unconventional'.
But I'm willing to compromise and accept 'eccentric'.
