Located to the East of the Village green, the hall was re-designed in 2008 by a local architect to accommodate a variety of activities and functions. There is parking along the green and on the streets. In the 1990s, a children’s play park was constructed with slides, climbing frames and swings. A specialised safety surface has been installed to protect the children.
Designed to home the workers of the Langton Estate, Gavinton was established in the late 1750s. The Village Hall as it now stands, was the original school until 1874.
