After the fire of 1731 the town as rebuilt according to the earlier street pattern except that the central part of the market place was left as open space. Today Blandford Forum is one of the best preserved Georgian market towns in England. The majority of the buildings in the centre of the town date from the period 1735-1760. The grey building in the centre is the Corn Exchange. The enclosed arcaded part is known as The Shambles and is still used by market traders. Above this on the first floor is the Town Hall.
