A view of St Neots Town Bridge from the Market Square with Dudeney & Johnstons Grocers (left), the Public Rooms (beyond the grocers) and the Bridge Hotel (right), in 1962/1963

The public rooms were pulled down in 1963 to make way for the building of the new town bridge across the River Great Ouse. This photograph is held at St Neots Museum, ref SNEMU 1995.1.3.72.

Residents recall the public rooms being used for meetings in the evenings and a cafe during the day. In the 1940s it was called the Coffee Pot Tea Rooms and later it was known as Stiles Cafe.
