I've only too often said that there's nowhere quite so beautifully green as England!

This picture once again proves just that.

Earnest Pyke,I've been on the case regarding the canopy Market Hall,P-a-D.
13th May, I had a conversation with one of the market inspectors to day,who informs me that it was an original feature of the building,albeit with some minor alterations,
The old Market Hall was opened in 1877.
Kind regards,Tom
