Rothwell - The Market House
Rothwell - The Market House
A delightful and unusual building designed by William Grumbald for Sir Thomas Tresham. Work started in 1577 but remained unfinished for nearly 300 years until completed by local architect J A Gotch. Cross shaped in plan, it is decorated with the coat of arms of 90 local landed families and latin inscriptions. Now a local council office.
