Ledbury is one of the finest black and white market towns in England. The market house was built about 1653 by the celebrated John Abel. It is a dominating structure supported on 16 massive posts of either Spanish chestnut or English oak. Legend has it that the supporting pillars were once part of the Spanish Armada, but it is more likely that they were obtained from a local wood. One of the building original functions was to store grain that was being sold at market.

The building still has connections with marketplaces as everyweek a market is held under and around the building, offering a lot of local produce for sale. Everything from bread and cheeses to the locally produced cider and perry (you can't beat cider and perrys from Herefordshire).
Some more of my panoramic views from around Ledbury can be found here.
