The Corn Exchange seen in March 1964. Although the dealer’s desks were still in place the weekly trade in agricultural produce and supplies had dwindled and there was a real danger of this fine building being demolished replaced by a Tesco supermarket! Fortunately local people protested vehemently and it eventually became the town library.
