About this image
There has been a market in Bakewell ‘from time immemorial’ and its charter was confirmed in 1330. Held every Monday, the market once sold butter, pots and pans, corn, horses, cattle sheep and pigs, in various streets of the town. In 1826 the market was moved to a site in Granby Road, to clear the streets and relieve the congestion. It was later confined to cattle and sheep with a stall market for food and household goods.
The livestock market has now moved across the river to the new Agricultural Business Centre. Two footbridges link it to the town centre.
