WINSTER Market House

winster market house winster market house

Late 17th or early 18th century market house.

The upper part of the Market Hall is brick built, but was probably originally timber framed. The arches were originally open and used by miners and street traders, whilst dairy produce was sold in the upper storey.

In 1906 Winster Market House became the first Derbyshire property to be acquired by the National Trust, at a cost of £50 and is now a listed building.

It is an Information room with interpretation panels and a scale model of Winster village.
