Description

Lydford's village hall is the Nicholls Hall. Built in 1929 by Alderman Nicholls, its name is partly why it was built in Lydford. Mr.Frederic James Nicholls, an alderman in Exeter, lived in the house, currently called Torside, down the rough track that once lead to the Great Western Railway's station at Lydford Junction. Technically this bit of Devon is part of Brentor Parish so Alderman Nicholls offered to build a village hall for Brentor. There were two stipulations, one was that the parishioners should furnish the hall and the second that it should be called 'Nicholls Hall'. Unfortunately for Brentor, the Parish Council at the time could not agree to naming it after the benefactor so the same offer was made to Lydford Parish Council. The rest is history.
