Bakewell Market Facilities
The facilities at Bakewell are second to none with cattle and sheep penning and sale rings all under one roof together with offices, cafes and conference facilities and even a drop-in medical clinic for farmers.
The livestock handling facilities are particularly noteworthy with extensive unloading bays, sorting and numbering races and the lorry parking is extensive with a well equipped lorry wash and wheel disinfecting tank at the exit to the market.
The sale rings are designed to exhibit stock to best advantage and provide easy access for vendors and purchasers. The main ring has a spiral staircase for access to the rostrum and a viewing gallery overlooking the cattle penning area. There is also wheelchair access and a lift to the seating areas.
Both main sales rings feature electronic displays of information and are linked to the office computer system.
Those unfamiliar with the layout of Bakewell should be aware that the town centre is only a short walk from the market.
