Dunster Market Buildings

Only the Yarn market and the width of High Street mark the site of the market place recorded from 1307 but now car parking. Formerly there was a cross, a shambles, a town hall and a tub house but all remaining market buildings, except the Yarn Market, were swept away in the 1820s as no longer needed and probably making access difficult for properties on the west side of the street.
