The Market House - The three storey Classical style building was designed by renowned English architect Sir Charles Barry for the 3rd Marquis of Lansdowne. Barry (1795-1860) was a prominent architect of his time. Probably his most famous work, undertaken in partnership with the Victorian architect A.W.N. Pugin, is Westminster Pallace (The House of Parliament) in London. Pugin's influence is also seen in the architecture of the Holy Cross Churchand the nearby Convent. You will pass both on the heritage trail.
