Ledbury – Market House
Described as the jewel in Ledbury’s crown, this magnificent Grade I listed timber-framed building took 51 years to finish, eventually being completed in 1668. Its beauty has attracted photographers for many years and the pre-war Minor has featured in a number, including the two Birmingham registered saloons to be seen among this quartet of shots. The first of these is 1929 Fabric Saloon OF 2118 seen partly obscured by the tree at the roadside. The second such image portrays Coachbuilt Saloon OG 4483 which was first registered in 1931, towards the tail-end of swb OHC Minor production. The final two images shows a scene outside the Market House from circa 1930 and a recreation of the same vista by Kate and Ken Martin while on a recent visit in their 1930 Coachbuilt Saloon VX 4590.(Photographs courtesy of Kate Martin, Judges and LAT Images)
