The Market Cross
The Market Cross, or Mercat Cross, in Castlegate was erected in 1686 by John Montgomery of Old Rayne at the behest of the town council.

Its original location was opposite the Tolbooth of 1615 (spire still visible today). In 1842 it was moved to its current location to the east after being considered an obstruction to traffic by police commissioners.
