Maghera Market House

The market house in Maghera was noted in 1814 as being ‘wretched’. By 1824 it was described as ‘very decaying’. It was replaced in 1833 by a new market house built by Mr Clarke of Upperlands. It was said to be a large neat building with spacious rooms in the upper level to hold the petty sessions. It is a two-storey building with three bays at the upper level. At the lower level there were two arched openings which have now been partly blocked by windows and a door. The building is now modern offices.
