Stalybridge's Grade II listed covered market hall now houses its Civic Hall and offices. The two storey red brick building is embellished with black brick and dressed stone. The plinth courses are stone with banded rustication.
The entrance fašade is seven bays long, topped by a square clock tower with a steep slated roof surmounted by a cast iron crowsĺ nest.
There are three semicircular dummy arches between pilasters and one brick panel on either side of the main entrance. There are two other doorways. Above all these a stone cornice has a row of square windows on each side. A projecting stone string course on corbels carries a pierced stone parapet at roof level.
The side elevations are 13 bays long with large semicircular headed windows framed by brick pilasters. Each side has a central doorway.
