What's Happening On Lower Marsh?

Big changes are underway at the Baylis Road end of the street.

Drills, diggers and all sorts of other heavy duty equipment are now being utilised outside La Barca in Lower Marsh.

The Lower Marsh Regeneration Project moved to the Eastern end of the street in late February, necessitating that end of the road's closure to traffic, the relocation of Lower Marsh Market up the street and the erection of rather a lot of fencing.

Pavements have been dug up and re-surfaced and a much-hated blue market waste compactor, which also acted as a dumping ground for unscrupulous locals, has been removed as part of the scheme to pretty-up the iconic market street.

When the project finishes in late summer the entrance to the road will look something like the image below.

A more handsome array of 55 market pitches will stretch along the road, with some stalls having access to electricity for lighting or cooking.

In the meantime, shops on the street are still open as usual, and would appreciate as much support from loyal customers as possible.
