Historical facts about the Bridgwater Cornhill

An old sketch of the Cornhill

The Cornhill is the historic centre of the medieval town. Originally there was an octagonal market cross on the site. The Cornhill market cross was erected in the late 14th century when the Cornhill was known as Cornchepyng. On market days, fish, fowl, vegetables, and other fare were traded at the Cornhill.
