Butcher Row

Taking in this view of Butcher Row in our archive image from 1900, it’s clear that the pace of life was much more sedate back then.  This street, pedestrianised in 1981, unsurprisingly takes its name from the number of butchers that used to trade here. Today, only one remains (near Wednesday Market), but until recently a butcher’s shop was also located in the building with the flagpole, to the left on this archive image.
