A view looking to the southwest towards the statue at the Cornmarket mall.
The corn market at Warminster was one of the largest in the South West, and one of the few which had to submit weekly reports of sales and prices to the government during the 19th century. It was a “pitched market” , so called due to the practice of pitching one open bag of grain in front of each traders other sacks, in order for buyers to sample the quality. These open bags also had a market toll of two quarts of grain removed, which was normally paid to the landlord at Longleat. Trading would commence in the early hours and be over by 1pm .
Although the mall is named after the corn market, it is not on the site of the original, as this was located behind the area now occupied by Dixons and Barclays Bank in the main shopping area.
