The Corn Exchange
Standard Quay will soon become a “bigger gem than it already is” with its latest addition – The Corn Exchange
The building started life in the early 1800s and although its original use is uncertain it was clearly not used for coal, manure or timber.
Although it may have originally been used for general storage, surviving internal fittings suggest that at some stage it was used for the storing and processing of grain and it may always have been associated with the corn trade.
Later in the mid-twentieth century it was often described as a ‘provender mill’ which suggests the storage and processing of animal feedstuffs.
