The Old Town Hall is had many uses in its lifetime. It served the old Borough of Seaford for some 300 years (1560s to the 1880s) as Town Hall Court House and Gaol . Its appearence now is somewhat changed from earlier times. It was once described as having a diminutive outside stair case leading to a diminutive entrance door topped by a diminutive spire. Underneath it had a diminutive prison. A ground floor entrance to let to the Town Hall, whilst the staircase led to the small court room. Today its is a used as a community tea room.
