The Market Hall building in Devonport, UK, has a rich history that dates back to the mid-19th century. The original Market Hall was designed by Mr James Piers St Aubyn of London. The foundation stone was laid on Tuesday 13th of July 1852.

At the time, the Market Hall was a thriving marketplace and an important hub for the local community. It was used to sell a wide variety of goods, including fresh produce, meat, fish, and textiles.

Over the years, the Market Hall continued to play an important role in the local community and it became a beloved landmark in the area. The building was sadly damaged by bombing during World War II and it was subsequently poorly maintained.

By the early 2000s, the Market Hall was in a state of disuse and disrepair and it was in danger of being demolished.

Fortunately, in 2013, Real Ideas embarked on their major restoration project that saw the building transformed once again.
