Market Renewal Phase 2

Compare if you will with my posts of 7th February 2012 and of 29th February 2012.

The telephone box is still where it was but the "Crown Pole" has gone as have the market stalls along the front. Traders have moved into the Northern half of the market ground while this half is renewed. Much of the area has been repaved and new stalls have been partially erected outside the Clarendon Mall.

In the background is the dome of what was original Brownson's and is now £-stretcher but which everyone remembers as Woolworths.

The scene is probably already a bit different as this was taken before my recent holiday and I've not been down into town since my return as yet.

A contribution to Ruby Tuesday and also Our World Tuesday.


  1. Glad to see they are rebuilding the market rather than it disappearing. We seem to be losing our local markets.

  2. IF I live in that area, I'd be sad to see the market gone. Glad the traders just moved.


  3. I hope the old traders will still be able to afford a pitch after the work is done. If so then yay for renovations as losing local markets is a sad thing.


  4. Great capture. Happy RT2.
