Waterloo Action Centre


The Waterloo Action Centre building was constructed in 1893 as a public library. It remained in use for this purpose until the early 1960s. Although it successfully survived the intense local bombardment Waterloo suffered during the Second World War, the building had been poorly maintained. By the 1960s it was considered a health and safety hazard and was closed down and vacated. The old library remained empty for about 10 years.
