Origins of The Market Hall The market hall was orginally built on a roman bath site. During its consturction, and later excavations, roman coins were found in large numbers.
A covered market hall was provided by the corporation in 1854 but this was completely rebuilt on a more extenisive site 1889. Traders were reluctant to move indoors but further incentive was given by the low extension along west tower street for the poultry market.
The standers of today have changed, people no longer need the market. Instead we have all these fancy supermarkets and the market is now dying as a result.
