taken 6 years ago, near to Altrincham, Trafford, Great Britain

Altrincham Market Cross and Old Market Place
Altrincham Market Cross and Old Market Place
The replica market cross was erected in 1990 where the original once stood outside the seventeenth century buttermarket. A plaque at its base (SJ7688 : Market Cross (detail)) gives more detail.

To the left is The Orange Tree. It and some of the adjacent buildings have fragments of 16th and 17th century buildings. The Orange Tree, which has been a pub only since the 1880ís, consists of two ancient timber buildings which had an alley on the left and has wattle and daub remains in a back room.

Behind the cross, in this view, is the Old Market Tavern. Formerly The Unicorn, it was a mail coaching inn. It is a listed building.
