Indoor Market


(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

"I" is for "Indoor Market" and this was the scene today in Ashton's Market Hall.

The Market Hall dates from 1829 and was expanded in stages. It was destroyed by fire in 2004 but re-built within the shell of the old building. The indoor market was one of the favourite destinations for shoppers in Ashton and the re-built hall has gone a long way towards recapturing the feel of the original although it would never be possible to replace its cosy quaintness.

See Birds Eye View of this location. The current view shows the Market Hall during re-building.

"Indoor Market" is a contribution to ABC Wednesday. For more "I" posts from around the world please follow this link.

Sorry this week's ABC entry is even later than last week's!

  1. I like indoor markets and the only place I've ever found them is Britain. We do have weekly outdoor markets, but they are just not the same.

    Great I!

  2. What an Interesting place. I'm afraid I would have insufficient income to invest in everything I'd like in such an indoor market though.

    Innovative and imaginative interpretation of the letter I.

    On behalf of the ABC Wednesday Team, Thanks for joining us this week. Hope to see you back next week too!

  3. We don't have outdoor market, all of our markets are indoor. There's one just 3 minutes walk away from my apartment.

  4. Nice colourful shot, Martin. Fond memories of the old interior - but it must be more pleasant to work in the new surroundings.

  5. I used to run an artisans' arcade way back in 1978.
