Market Day in Stokesley
Market Day in Stokesley
Friday is market day with the Town Hall in the background.
Quote from an Edwardian book "Rambles in Cleveland" by Michael Heavisides:
'Stokesley was the metropolis of Cleveland up to the time when railways first made their appearance. To the petty sessions cases were brought from the whole district, Middlesbrough included. It was the circuit town of the Wesleyan Methodists. Saturday was market day, when farmers from the dale, hill-sides, and villages came with carts, waggons, and horses bring their produce to the town. The open Shambles were full of country butchers, who sold their meat at so much a lump. Around the market cross the butter women stood, and there were also stalls, containing food and articles of almost every description.'
