Built in 1890 as the Town Hall and Town Hall Chambers, replacing the earlier market building adjoining to the W, by the local architect Thomas Rowlands. The hall later became known as the Lesser Town Hall and served as a Music Hall and cinema. It became a clothes market in 1988 and is now re-named The Arcade.
