    The Curfew Tower

    Curfew tower and bell

    This is probably the oldest building in the centre of Moreton. Dating from the 17th century it still has its curfew bell (1633).

    'Curfew' was the time when everyone had to be inside their own house, and the bell was rung to warn them of this. Being outside after curfew carried heavy penalties.

    Market Hall
    1 more image

    Although it looks old, the Redesdale Market Hall is actually Victorian (1837-1901) and built in the 'Tudor' style.

    It was designed by Sir Ernest George, and built in 1887 from the local honey-coloured limestone. It has four arches which originally formed an arcade, but are now filled in.

    The Redesdales were a wealthy local family, who were benefactors of the town.

    Moreton-In-Marsh Market Day

    Moreton-In-Marsh has a Market Day once a week on Tuesday's, where vendors set up all up and down the street selling their wares. It is fun and you can get some really great deals. You can barter with them, and usually get a better deal than what they are asking. You will find candies, leather goods, purses, books, movies, fish, produce, pet products, clothing, etc.

    High Street

    The town is pretty and offers a lot of distractions. There are various shops and caf├ęs and side streets to be explored. Parking on High Street can become scarse.

    Toll notice

    On the wall under the Curfew Tower you can see an old wooden notice displaying the tolls (payments) required for setting up a market stall in Moreton.

    The pittoresque straw thatched roofed houses are best seen by driving around the area through various villages. It would be a shame not to see them.
