Let $p:E \rightarrow B$ be a principal $S^1$ bundle with $B$ dominated by a finite complex. Then it is easy to show that $E$ is also dominated by a finite complex. In this paper we show, under suitable additional hypotheses, that in fact $E$ has the homotopy type of a finite complex. The proof is carried out by computing Wall's finiteness obstruction for $E$.
