3-4 Market Place – Romans Antiques and Collectables

"We buy (and sell) almost anything you can think of!"

Shop signs carried only pictures until the 17th century, when merchants began to add their names above their premises.

Brief History

3-4 Market Place has a late 20th-century shopfront at street level with an early 20th-century timber-framed picture window on the first floor.

Current Condition

The shop signage is characterful if over-dominant. The building is deteriorating – the whole façade is a lightweight timber structure.

Suggested Works

Remove shopfront and lower fascia to allow structural repairs to be carried out. Replace gutter and rebuild cornice and upper fascia. Repair first floor glazed frontage including new leaded glass to spandrels. New glazed timber lower shopfront with fascia (excluding signage & pilasters).

A pilaster is a rectangular, flat column that protrudes from a wall.

  • Hi Steven. Thanks for the post (and the corrections). If you have any stories to share about the property and its history we’d love to hear them.

  • The shop has internal shutters. Also, collectables is spelt collectables.

    Thank you.
