13. The Market Town of Northallerton
The Main High Street and Shopping Centre of Northallerton
There is nothing run-down in Northallerton!, this is a busy prosperous market town with a great variety of shops, cafes and restaurants and the traditional market where you can buy a great selection of local produce.
Northallerton is a busy bustling old market town and its station is on the equally busy and convenient East Coast main-line.
The modern market cross replaces the medieval cross in Northallerton but the traditions of a busy market town are more than well preserved - its friendly place with a huge variety of shops, cafes and pubs all within a short walk of each other.
The architecturally boring Northallerton Town Hall of 1873 is on the left but is surrounded by a variety of good shops and the town is even more popular on market days when both sides of the broad High Street have long rows of market stalls.
At the end of the High Street of Northallerton you can see remnants of what was a cruck framed house (much rebuilt-developed since medieval times) at the end of building housing Northallerton's The Nags Head and the Smart Allick's Ladies and Men's Wear shop!
The Fleece in Northallerton High Street is the oldest pub-inn and has two timber framed gables (ΔΔ) above two lower floors of stone walled construct and is partly medieval in origin.
The external architecture of All Saints Parish Church, Northallerton
All Saints Parish Church, Northallerton is a dark imposing medieval building at the north end of the High Street.
This fine old medieval building is well worth a visit ...
AND PLEASE LEAVE A DONATION TO HELP WITH ITS UPKEEP
The imposing tower dates from 1420 and is built in the Perpendicular style of architecture.
All Saints Parish Church, Northallerton is mainly Perpendicular in style of architecture though the chancel, on the right, is Victorian Perpendicular! from 1885 by C. Hodgson and Fowler but both transepts, with long lancet windows, date from the early 13th century - you can see this clearly in the south transept on the left.
All Saints Parish Church, Northallerton: The west doorway on the left is Romanesque in style and older than most of the rest of the building, it has a round arch with three slight chamfers, possibly from ~1200 AD. The nave is probably from after 1200 but still in the 13th century, so this is a fine old building indeed and still functioning as the principal parish church. The crossing tower is also considered to be 13th century.
