Market design is flawed

Before the architect who designed Sowerby Bridge market designs another one, he/she should spend four days (minimum) working on markets such as Todmorden, Hebden Bridge and Sowerby Bridge on a cold, windy and wet day. They he/she would know what is wring with Sowerby Bridge market. The roof has leaked since the market opened. The lighting is very poor, even when the lights are working. The steps are unsuitable as there have been accidents, the handrails are not very good.

I could find more things to say about Sowerby Bridge market but every person I speak to says the same; Sowerby Bridge market is cold, dark, poky, dirty and uninviting.

Been once, won’t be back again.
