Cleator Moor Market Hall

SHARE:

In 1879, the Cleator Moor Market Hall was built on two acres of land bought from the Carron Iron Company, at a cost of £3,500. The market hall was used for selling local produce, meetings, and public entertainment. The building seated 1,000 persons. It eventually closed due to a lack of use.

In February 1966, the building was destroyed by a fire, despite the valiant efforts of 20 firemen during a nine hour struggle. The hall had been converted to a plastics factory by Scandinavian firm, Termotex Development Ltd.

There were about six tons of paper, a ton of plastics and several items of specialised machinery within the building when it caught alight. No one was killed or injured with fire-fighters spending two days of follow-up, tackling the reigniting debris, including plastics caught up beneath the fallen masonry.
