The Guildhall in Leicester, England, is a Grade I listed timber framed building, with the earliest part dating from c. 1390. The building once acted as the town hall for the city until the current one was commissioned in 1876. Although some parts are earlier, the majority of the building dates from the 15th century. Whilst the interior is interesting the external facade has such wonderful beams to select shapes from and explore.
