There are not many market buildings like this one. It is a large open covered space in the centre of the village and signifies the importance of trade for Dunster. Wonderful architecture of the vernacular.

Very well preserved building. Can see exactly how it was built all those years ago, and it is in amazing condition for it's age. Is a great tourist attraction for the village, which also has lots of lovely old buildings.

We had a great time walking through this lovely old village with little shops, excellent tea-rooms and old church to visit. It feels like walking through an old English movie! Very good food also. But almost every tea room and shop is closed at 4pm!
