Back Committee Room

This room may have been, on account of its size, the room available to the twenty-four ‘common council men’, rather than the twelve aldermen, as the senior members of the council were called.

In the rear committee room there are, amongst the paintings, two relating to Doncaster’s racing history: Royal Lancer, the winner of the 1922 St Leger, painted by Lynwood Palmer, and the finish of the St Leger in 1958, painted by J Appleyard. The wall clock is by Richard Holt of Newark.

The room also contains gifts given by Doncaster’s twin towns and a ship’s bell from the decommissioned frigate HMS Andromeda.
