Illuminating Malton

This set of images were all captured in the early hours before sunrise. They show areas around Malton's Market Place as it can be seen when illuminated by the street lights.

The first image shows Malton's very own Shambles, just like York it is a narrow cobbled street with quirky little shops.

Then onto Woodall & Sons. A genuine traditional hardware shop in many ways, from the exterior to the interior this shop looks like something that time forgot with it's old fashioned signage and ancient appearance. Then once inside nothing appears to change, there are old timber panels with antique glass windows and glass displays. All types of high quality hardware products adorn the old style displays. This shop is one of those hardware stores where it's not really a case of what can you buy here, it's more of a; what can't you buy here; rope, nets, clothing, camping equipment, pen-knives and scissors, locks, tools, farming equipment, brushes, sharpening stones, you name it... the list seems to be endless. The odds are, if you can't find it anywhere else, you'll find it there. G Woodall and Sons Ltd

St Michael's Church is of Norman construction and takes it's place right in the centre of Market Place, in the heart of the town. A church has stood here since around the year 1150.

The next image shows Malton Town Hall, currently the home of the Tourist Information Bureau and also Malton Museum. Plans are in place for a redevelopment of the property which will see the Tourist Information moved to another location, nothing has been finalised regarding the future of Malton Museum. This leads to another image featuring the town hall on the far left of the image looking up Market Place into Newgate. Then another view of Market Place showing the Post Office with the postbox outside, over to the right are two leaning, gabled properties which have a narrow passage between them. The passage is somewhat narrower at the top than at the bottom caused both by design and because the properties lean toward each other.

Right opposite the entrance to the Town Hall is a row of shops which includes a delicatessen, a news agents and the Market Place Cafe.

The final image in this set is the view from Market Place through the passage that separates the Town Hall and G Woodall and Sons Ltd. At the top the traditional butcher shop of Derek Fox can be seen, during the day time Derek hangs game birds outside the front and rests his old delivery bike there as a reminder of old times.
