History

Further south, Watling Street widens to form a market place complete with town hall and a corn exchange. The town received a market charter before 1220 and was an Anglo-Saxon fortified 'burh' since 917 AD. The town hall, built in Italianate style in 1865 with a central clocktower, is now divided into the offices belonging to the town council and other commercial concerns. To its left is the post office, located in an imposing brick fronted building of 1799. The market place still serves as a car park.
