Market Cross, Barnard Castle

  • Description

    "Looking north up Market Place (A67) from inside the Market Cross building that forms a roundabout at the junctions of Market Place, The Bank and Newgate. In its time this circular structure has been a town hall, courtroom, lock-up and fire station. Another name for it is the Butter Market from when farmers' wives sold their wares from inside at street level." Photo by michael ely, 2007, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
