Stand in this spot today and you’ll see a very different picture. This is now the site of Brown’s department store (formerly Beverley Picture Playhouse), and before that it was The Old Corn Exchange building (pictured). This end of Saturday Market had been known as Corn Hill from the 17th century, and the old Butchers’ Shambles was converted into this building in 1825. It lasted until 1886, when it was demolished to make way for swimming baths.
