Skipton Market is unique in the way it operates. Its history dates back to medieval times, when a Royal Charter from King John granted consent to 'The Lord of the Honour' of Skipton Castle to hold a fair on Skipton High Street.
This consent still holds true today - and the current owner of Skipton Castle grants the rights to hold the market on four days each week.
For many years, the market in Skipton was a place where animals were traded. The town's close association with sheep is reflected in the name. Skipton actually means 'Sheep Town' - so the historic link will always remain.
The trading of animals still takes place, on an almost daily basis, in Skipton - but this trading now takes place in the purpose-built Auction Mart on the outskirts of Town.
The Canal itself is Britain’s longest, at 127 miles, and was originally used for transporting coal, stone, cloth and other cargo after its completion in 1816.
Of course the Canal’s busy industrial heyday has now passed, but the Leeds Liverpool is still enjoyed by thousands as a brilliant way of exploring the area, reliving the past and relaxing as the world passes by.
