The Civic Hall’s Dance Floor

Back in 1951, Nantwich Civic Hall had its wooden spring floor fitted, which is still going strong today.IMG_1519

The Valtor floor was supplied and fitted by popular firm Francis Morton, Junior & Co, who also supplied floors to the Grafton Rooms, Adelphi Hotel, Reece’s Ballroom Liverpool, and Bradford Odeon.

Made from Canadian Maple, we believe our dance floor is the only one of its kind in Cheshire and also the largest dancefloor in Cheshire measuring 26.7m x 13m.

The Civic Halls flooring is controlled with wedges that are adjusted with key operated pullys for softening or hardening the floor.Francis MortonFrancis Morton1
