24 Market Place is a Grade II listed former Moot Hall (meeting or assembly building) dating from 1752 and commissioned by Lady Oxford of Welbeck.
The windows and ground floor were remodelled in the mid- and late 20th century. Construction is in ashlar stone with a timber shopfront and coursed stone above and a Welsh slate roof. It is a striking building in good condition with an imposing coat of arms in tympanum. It has had recent works at high-level including netting the pediment to discourage birds.
A tympanum is the vertical recessed, decorated feature you can see in the centre of the pediment on the photo.
A pediment is a triangular feature on the roofline at the front of a classical building, typically on top of a portico.
A portico is a structure typically attached as a porch to a building, consisting of a roof supported by columns at regular intervals.
