THE history of Thame’s famous market house has been remembered in a new booklet published recently.
It was written by Sandra Davison who volunteers at the Citizens Advice Bureau, which currently occupies the building.
The historic site dates back to the early 18th century, when it was used as an ale-house.
Since then it has been used for things such as a chapel, a furniture store and a grocers but despite it’s name it was never a market house in the sense that goods were sold within it.
The booklet is available from The Bookhouse, priced £7.99, with proceeds going to the CAB.
