I love that! It seems so modern.

I love all these Victorian wrought-iron structures. Hope the scaffolding is temporary!
All the best :)

Hello, Desert Quilts. It will be wonderful when it is properly restored - I think it was first opened in 1896.

Hello Pat. Yes. The scaffolding is only there while the roof is restored. It's a big market with lots of stalls. I find it very smelly though because there are too many (for me) which sell rather unappetising fried food. But lots of towns have lost their indoor markets so it's nice to come across a council investing in one instead of knocking it down.
