March – 78 to 82 High Street

In the town’s heritage trail, it reads about this building at 78-82 High Street in the town:

“Looking at this property, currently Cassano’s, it is difficult to believe that the building has such an important history. It was formerly the town’s Guildhall, built on the site of an earlier Guildhall in 1827. Later two wings were added to house the first March National School. It was also used as the town library”.

I agree, it is indeed difficult to believe this, especially as I can’t find the property on the listed buildings register or any old photos. Puzzling…..
