The cattle have long gone
The cattle have long gone
The old cattle market in Highbridge closed many years ago. The area, at the rear of the former Highbridge Hotel, was purchased and filled in (as it is part of the River Brue). The river bed was covered with wattle hurdles, then large stones from a quarry, followed by smaller waste and then more hurdles. Once the new land had settled it took all the weight of many lorry-loads of animals. See ST3147 : Heartbreak hotel for the fašade of the hotel.
