In 1772 the original Market committee accepted an estimate for nine hundred and sixteen pounds and ten shillings for the building of twenty butchers' shops.

John Gwynn, the architect for Magdalen Bridge drew up the plans and designed the High Street frontage.

Twenty more shops soon followed and from this the ‪#‎market‬ grew into the delight it is now.

Come and visit us this Bank Holiday Weekend!
