Ornate Cantilevered Staircase
The ornate cantilevered staircase was added at the same time as the Oak Court in 1829. The fireplace below was saved from a fire in 1780 when the previous Council House burnt down after a mayoral banquet.
The statue of Apollo has been located in this space since its return to this building after a long absence being orginally displayed at the Guildhall in 1852.
City and Union Flags
The City flag and Union flag are flown from flag poles, installed in the late 1990s. The 32 Regiment Royal Artillery Flag was given to the city in June 2015 when they exercised their Freedom of the City.
