Market Place


The Market Place is located at the north end of the High Street in Belford. The Market Cross stands in the centre of the Market Place, overlooked by the Blue Bell Hotel. At the east side of Market Place are the Black Swan Hotel and Nos. 2 & 3 (Lomenech Gill - shop and house). Belford Museum is located on the corner of Market Place and Church Street.

In 1742 Abraham Dixon purchased a licence to hold a weekly market and two annual fairs at Belford. "The market is on Tuesday, and is noted for corn, much of which is sold for exportation; the fairs are on the Tuesday before Whitsuntide, and Aug. 23rd." (S.Lewis, 1848)
