The walls came tumbling down
The walls came tumbling down
This part of Silver Street used to be home to the old Town Hall and the Court Leet. It had a colonnade (which held traders' stalls) and also housed some stocks, pillories and a whipping post for those found guilty of misdemeanours. But the area is still known as the Old Market, alongside The Shambles - appropriately enough, the sadly neglected hall collapsed in 1826.
