|Entrance to the Market Hall||Foxlowe, overlooking the Market Place|
The Market was built in 1897 and the main entrance is on Market Square. Overlooking the square from the east is Foxlowe built in the late 18th century. It is described by Bode in 1979 as the head-quarters of the Amalgamated Society of Textile Workers and Kindred Trades, Labour Party head-quarters and Working Men's Club. Also on the square but not shown in my pictures is the Red Lion, dating from the early 18th century.
