|Cirencester (often referred to as the Capital of the Cotswolds) was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times. In later years it was a very prosperous medieval wool town. Cirencester’s market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist. Cirencester’s market town status was mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086. Traders still set up their stalls every Monday and Friday and since 1999 the town has had its own farmers’ market. Crafts and antiques markets are also regular attractions. |
There has been a weekly Antiques & Collectors’ Market in Cirencester’s Corn Hall every Friday for more than 4 decades with over 40 dealers offering quality antiques and collectables.
