As a child in the 1950’s, I often accompanied my father to the Tuesday Mart in Hexham. The highlight of those visits was Fish and Chips at the long hut which stands at the top end of Argyle Street. I now live in Suffolk but visit Hexham once every few years. On my first visit to the area, I was surprised to find that the hut still standing although in a state of deterioration. On subsequent visits, the decline of the building progressed but the hut remained relatively intact. My question is ‘why is the hut still there’ and what might be the future for it? When was it last in use and is the current owner known?
