Brief

Retford is a busy market town in Nottinghamshire and Market Place is at its heart. The public realm improvements were intended to lift the town’s central environment while integrating with the high quality townscape that surrounds it. The design will provide an area to cater for everyday use, the popular weekly market and to host the town’s exciting calendar of events.

Solution

The paving specification demanded robust, low maintenance materials to withstand the weekly market and large scale town events. Our Hunters Hill Yorkstone was specified due to its appearance, technical properties, local source and longevity of 20 years guaranteed supply.
 
In addition, granite kerb was used to run the length of Market Place providing a durable edge to the adjacent road.

The success of Market Place’s rejuvenation is due to its understated, simple design and use of exceptional quality natural materials, which create a stage for the town’s activity while complimenting the surrounding historic buildings.
