14.6.54 Grainger Market
G.V. I
Covered market. 1835 by John Dobson for Richard Grainger. Painted plaster with
cast iron grilles; cast iron girder roof to west range, plaster to other ranges.
Rear range a large rectangle, with bowed lattice girder roof and glazed roof-
lights; other ranges a grid with open shops, many with iron grilles over, with
pilasters defining bays, and with large shop numbers on fascia. Flat roofs with
plastered cross beams; cross passages running from Granger Street have round-arched
ceilings. Much original work visible, probably more remains behind boarded
fascias. Walls above shops contain sashes with vertical glazing bars. An early
covered market, built to replace the 1808 'Butcher Market' which Grainger had to
demolish before Grey Street could be laid out. Source: Wilkes and Dodds
