The Market Square is located off High Street.  The old Market Building, later the Town Hall, has rooms above an open sided area which still contains holes drilled into the stonework in a chequerboard pattern - these were used for holding pegs for keeping track (tally) of amounts sold.  The Assize Court was, up until the 1960s, held in the building on the left of the first picture.  The foreground statue is of Lord Clive.  The last pictures show the Princess Street end of the old Market Building.
