Originally the building was covered in thick lime plaster and the roof was thatched. At the rear stands the Crane House with the crane folded back against the building ready to be swung out over the river to unload a boat. It was here that the stone that came from Caen in Normandy and used for the re-building of Canterbury Cathedral was unloaded.
Today the Town Hall is used by the Town Council for all their meetings and it is believed to be the oldest and the smallest in the country still in use. The Town Hall is now licensed to hold weddings and civil ceremonies. In the recently re-furbished Undercroft, a ten minute DVD film about Fordwich and the Town Hall can now be viewed by all visitors including those unable to go to the upstairs courtroom.
