The Cattle Market &

Tring Local History Museum

For many centuries the livestock and general marker was held in Tring High Street (The called Market Street) but the Rothschilds moved the livestock market to a new site on Brook Street over 100 years ago.  This picture shows the market as it was about 100 years ago.


The livestock market closes over 20 years ago, and the general market was moved first to a car park and in 2006 was relocated to the sheep and pig pens shown above.

The old market office (which had lost its triple peaked profile) became redundant.

The building has now been acquired as a local history museum to be run by the Tring & District Local History &  Museum Society. Thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund the building is being restored to its original profile and the space under the arched roofs is being glazed to increase the display area. All structural work has now been completed. (January 2009).
