Listing Text

ST 01 SE UFFCULME THE SQUARE (Centre)
Uffculme
4/185 The Shambles
5.4.66
GV II
Public seating formerly part of the old market. Probably C17, or earlier, much
renewed and altered in the C19. Open work timber structure with gable end slate
roof. End posts with tie beams supported by curved braces; pegged with some bolts.
Decorative C19 bargeboarding and apex pinnacles and pendants. It originally
contained a timber counter, but this has been replaced by a double wooden seat.
The building is similar to The Shambles in Shepton Mallet, dated by Pevsner as C15.
The woollen industry in Uffculme was of great importance in the C16, and reached
its height in the mid C18; the structure could date from within this period, but
there is no way of telling whether or not it was used for dealing in wool or cloth.
