History

1928: The hall was purchased for the residents of Hathersage for £650 raised by public subscription.

1929: After refurbishment the hall was opened as a memorial hall for community use.

17th April, 1951: The building lies within the Peak District National Park designated on that date.

2007: The hall underwent a major refurbishment.

2012: The hall underwent further improvements, supported by a grant from the National Lottery 'Awards for All' scheme.

April 2012: Application was made for planning consent to block up two lancet windows on the west façade. It was proposed to furnish them with panels giving the appearance of stained glass and bearing the names of the fallen of WW1and WW2, for which the local branch of the Royal British Legion would make a donation.

Early 2013: Work was completed on the two blocked off windows.

Early 2014: The sandstone tablet was restored and cleaned.

15th September, 2015: The outside of the building was surveyed by Roy Branson and Alan Willmot.
