Trading Histories

From the Archives

When our team of volunteers scoured the archives looking for information, some types of document cropped up more than others. Here is a sample of some the more common types:

Lists of Traders: Traders at Castle Market in 1959

Committee Meeting Minutes: Minute Books Notes 1911-1981

Lists of Bye-laws: [Castle Market] Byelaws 1960

Accounts Reports: Markets and Abattoir Accounts 1970

Reports and Correspondence: CA 572 – Proposed Market Extensions and Byelaws 1907 (1), CA 572 – Proposed Market Extensions and Byelaws 1907 (2)

By combining information from lots of different sources, we can begin to build a picture of the history of the Castle and markets as they developed and changed over the centuries.
