Lancaster’s market hall is closing its doors to the public for the last time.
I’m here on a bustling Friday in the town centre, but in the market hall there is a ghostly silence.
It is a deeply moving and sad time for traders such as Roger Green from Morecambe who has had his stall on Lancaster Market since 1962.
Roger, whose grandmother was from Star Bank Farm in Dolphinholme and used to sell butter from a stall in Lancaster Market, says its the end of an era for trading in the city.
Roger and the last of his fellow traders, say they feel anger towards the city council for failing to keep the market open.
Several stallholders have found alternative premises but Roger and Christopher have reluctantly decided to call it a day.
