History and construction


The old village hall building is shown here (circa 1970s) on the leftside on the way into Carrington from the west compared to the same view today. The replacement and much larger hall is obscurred behind the trees.






The old village hall (seen here in 1981) was demolished and the current hall constructed in the early 1980s. Much of the work was performed voluntarily by inhabitants of the village. These are some photos taken at the time of construction.
