Market Hall

The Market Hall is the most evident clue that Burton is officially a market down, requiring that at some time, it was granted a charter to operate as such by the crown.

The existing market hall opened in 1883, occupying the same site as the original built in the fifteenth century, has a stonework depicting King John (younger brother of Richard (Lionheart) I, accompanied by two knights, granting the charter to the kneeling abbot in the year 1200.
