Ledbury Market House

By Glostopcat  
Ledbury is one of the finest Black and White towns in the country. Situated on a crossroads, this market town has evolved to meet modern demands but still retains its charm and beauty. Ledbury's market house pictured here built around 1633, has been credited to John Abel. It is a two storey timber framed building, the lower storey is open for market activity, the upper storey with its attractive herringbone panelling, is supported on tapered timber posts and stone plinths. The gables are divided into square panels.
Many thanks to all those who commented and clicked on the winter in the Cotswolds series, i'll endeavour to catch up with what you've all been up to over the past week, now that i've got some time, Ed

Well done for managing to get a shot of the building with no cars going past. Lots of interest both in the picture and in your description. I also like the way you've filled the frame with the subject.

These are super shots Edmund.

I have seen a similar structure in Wootton Bassett in Wiltshire. Must try and capture it one day.

Best wishes,

Due to the movement of the people have been having fun trying to decide which order you took these in Ed, whether it was a falling out or a getting together! Certainly an eye catching building and thanks for the history write-up.

There's plenty of architectural interest in the town, lots of quaint old shops and historic black and white half timbered buildings
