I noticed this as I passed through Ardersier today. The Hall has definately seen better years!

The hall is actually a separately listed memorial. UKNIWM 44508 so I think it should be moved to its own thread.

Well done for getting the pics, I feel the hall is not long for this world.

Actually, the Hall has had a renovation and is in very regular use!
Following WW1, the people of Ardersier and Petty raised funds to build a War Memorial. They reached their target and decided with the remainder of the funds they would build a much needed Village Hall.
It was opened officially in 1923 and we will have our centenary in three years time.
