The Hall at the entrance to the village was built in the 1930s by A. Griffey and Son at a cost of £800, this being funded by the people of Northam. It was later taken over by the Anglican Church and was known as the Church Hall. The Hall was run by them until 2000. In July 2008 Northam Town Council regained ownership.
