The Buttercross

 In the Market Place, opposite to the end of Dolphin Lane stood the Buttercross (left), a large building of an oblong form, open below on all sides, and supporting on stone pillars, a spacious assembly room, in which most of the public business of the borough was transacted. When it was demolished the clock was put on a building that stood on the present site of Barclay's Bank (below).
