Formerly known as: Lower Campfield Market LIVERPOOL ROAD. Market hall, now museum. 1876, by Mangnall and Littlewood. Cast-iron and wood with slate and glass roofs. Large rectangular plan in the form of a nave with north and south aisles under parallel roofs, and north and south transepts to the centre and both ends. Two storeys, 1:3:1:3:1 bays, the centre and ends gabled, and the centre both wider and higher. Cast-iron columns with crocket caps, each bay divided horizontally by a moulded cornice, with small columns and decorated cast-iron railings below this and large-paned glazing above. The centre has a tall segmental-headed doorway rising into the glazed upper portion, a latticed band above eaves level, the gable filled with round-headed lights with slender shafts and margin panes, a bracketed cornice and the gable end of a continuous louvred ventilator, with a finial. Each end bay has a segmental-arched open-work panel in the centre, and an elliptical-arched iron bressummer to the gable, with glazing like that of the centre. The intermediate bays have oversailing eaves with scallop fringes, and continuous ridge ventilators. Three-bay east and west ends in matching style. Interior: cast-iron pillars with decorated caps carrying latticed girders, slender elliptical-arched latticed roof girders. Forms group with former Higher Campfield Market Hall to east (q.v.), by same architects in very similar style.
