SN9584 : Market Hall, Llanidloes

taken 10 years ago, near to Llanidloes, Powys, Great Britain

Market Hall, Llanidloes
Market Hall, Llanidloes
The only surviving timber-framed market hall in Wales. Recent tree-ring dating has shown the present Hall was built at some time between 1612 and 1622 but some of the timbers used in its construction date from the mid-16th century, possibly recycled from an earlier market hall.
The upper floor has, at different times, housed the law court and working men's institute. It now has a permanent exhibition about the construction of timber-framed buildings.
The SN9584 : The John Wesley Stone seems to have been reset since April 2006 and is now positioned so that someone might be able to stand upon it for preaching purposes. It means you must now twist your head to read the plaque. Older photos LinkExternal link show that it used to lie round the corner in the road.
