Remains of the demolished Market Hall, Commercial Road, Swindon
Remains of the demolished Market Hall, Commercial Road, Swindon
Looking into the site from Market Street, with part of Commercial Road in the background. That road still survives. Piles of rubble are on the site, which is surrounded by what remains of the exterior walls, plus a couple of shop units which were still standing. The Market Hall had some impressive iron gates, which presumably went for scrap. There also used to be a small fire station at the back, which housed one, or maybe two, fire engines.

In many places such an interesting Victorian building would have been preserved, but that was not to be. More photos:- SU1484 : Remains of the demolished Market Hall, Commercial Road, Swindon.
