More information about the organisation that manages this location

 

On the 4th October 1886 the Duke of Manchester opened the new cattle market in St Ives brining to an end the 700 year old practise of selling livestock in the streets of the town. The Bullock Market was renamed the Broadway as it remains to this day although the Sheep Market still retains its old name.

One wonders if the move did any good as 90 years later in 1976 the market closed for the last time and although the covered auction ring and a few sections of the railings of the animal enclosures are still extant. The livestock market today, other than a small area taken up by the St Ives Bus Station, is largely a car park.

By way of an historical note all the main posts of the surviving enclosures bear the crest of the old Borough of St Ives.
