Standing in the heart of Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, the Market house was first built in the late 17th Century and is grade II* listed and a scheduled ancient monument. Built of local Herefordshire sandstone, the building is showing sides of heavy decay to the stonework, particularly to the mullion and jamb stones around the first floor windows.

The building is currently used as an art and sculpture gallery however historically has been used for court rooms, library and heritage centre. Originally, the building did not have the benefit of a staircase which allow for additional security. In the mid 18th Century a decorative oak staircase was installed in the south west corner.
RRA’s conservation team carried out a quinquennial report on the building to identify what areas require repairs. These repairs are categorised in levels of urgency from A for immediate repairs to D which is desirable.
