A historical record of shops and other businesses in the Market Place, sometimes appearing as Market Street in a postal address. Shops and businesses have flourished here for many generations and premises have changed ownership many times. Some have closed down permanently at some time and have subsequently been converted into private houses, especially those furthest from the town centre.
The photographs below were taken in the year 2000 by a group of local residents *. Beneath each on is a simple historical list of known occupants up to 2020 and the rough dates they were last known to be at the property. The number given for each property corresponds as accurately as possible to the postal address and is shown on the above map. Photographic evidence and further details for some of these premises can be found on the ‘Shops & Businesses in the Market Place (2)‘ page. There is also a ‘Market Place Street Views‘ page that contains general information about the Market Place and may contain further details on the premises shown in the photographs, and a page specifically about ‘Faringdon Market‘. Also No. 7 Market Place undertook extensive renovations during 1996.
