Originally located on West Gate around the old market cross, 1877 saw a new purpose-built cattle market opened next to Titchfield Park.
The cattle market was initially held on the second Thursday of each month, and was a popular attraction over the decades.
The market closed in December 1988 and the site was eventually developed into what stands in its place today – Water Meadows Swimming and Fitness Complex.
