An English Heritage Grade II Listed Building

The Old Market Cross and Abbot’s Hall in the Swine Market in the picturesque market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria, England.

In 1227, the town gained a market charter and the right to hold an annual fair every September. Every week, stallholders would gather on Market Street to sell their wares, with horse traders in the Horsemarket and pig sellers in Swinemarket.

Kirkby Lonsdale is an ancient settlement, recorded in the Domesday Book. Located on the banks of the River Lune, it is ideally located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and within easy reach of the Lake District.

The Old Market Cross is an English Heritage Grade II Listed building, List Entry: 1145765.
