This five-bay two-storey market house was built in 1709. It has a three-bay two-storey pedimented breakfront whch is capped by an octagonal cupola. This is a modern replacement. The building was used as a prison in 1798 and as a courthouse and a parochial school during the 19th century. It has been extensively renovated and, although the ground floor is currently disused, the rest of the building functions as a town hall. The upper level is of red brick while the ground floor, which would originally have had an open arcade, is rusticated granite ashlar.
