The mid 19th century saw a major redevelopment of Tavistock take place as the 7th Duke of Bedford ploughed back some of his huge profits from mining enterprises into new buildings. In the 1850s-60s old streets and houses were cleared to be replaced by the Town Hall, the Pannier Market and new shops along a widened thoroughfare called Duke Street. The distinctive green Hurdwick stone used for much of the new construction was quarried just to the north of the town.
