Description:Arlington House, the detached property set back from the road in this photograph, used to stand on the Ironmarket in Newcastle-under-Lyme. It did not become known as Arlington House until the 1870s when it was owned by Arthur Leech a well known Newcastle figure. Prior to that it was known as Number 45 The Ironmarket and lived in by a surgeon called Ambrose Astle. After Arthur Leech the house passed to W.S Allen, the MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme, who sold it to the corporation in 1887 so it could be demolished to make way for the Municipal Hall. The Municipal Hall was built to create more space for civic engagements than The Guildhall could provide and to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887.
