The Market Square. In 1334 King Edward III granted a Charter to Alexander de Wyndesore permitting a weekly market on Wednesdays and a fair on St. Peter's Day 29th June. Later Friday became Market day and the Petertide Fair was replaced by a Cattle Fair held on the 12th May and a 'back end fair' in the autumn. The cattle fairs ceased in 1929 but Spring and Autumn fun fairs can still be held. In 1931 the Dallam Tower and Levens Hall estates as joint Lords of the Manor granted 'controlling the conduct of the Square' to the Parish Council.
