King's Lynn: Saturday Market Place

Dominating the Saturday Market Place is the 12th century church of St Margaret, an impressive building with some beautiful stained glass windows and an unusual tide clock.

In 1741, a great storm blew down the original church spire, which was replaced by the later tower. It contains two of the largest brasses in Britian, commemorating mayors of Lynn.

The Market Place itself is the oldest of the town's two market places, having been officially sanctioned by the Bishop of Norwich around 1100. There is still a market on the site every Saturday. The newer Tuesday Market Place was established some 300 years later as the town expanded to the north and west.

Opposite the market place stands the Town Hall, with its chequered facing of stone and flint. It was originally the Hall of the Trinity Guild, and dates from 1421. Behind is the 18th century Assembly Room and beside is the newer 19th century Council Chamber.
