market since 1548. Once a central meeting place for local produce
and wares, the market has adapted itself over the years from being
a cattle market to the buzzing place it is today.
Throughout the week there are numerous events held within the
Market Hall, including household auctions, vintage toy fairs,
family history fairs, boot fairs, dog shows, bird and reptile shows
and many other events.
