22 Market Street is a three storey Grade II listed building of 17th century date or earlier. It is conjoined at the rear with 28 King Street, an unlisted possibly timber framed building. To the north both buildings were abutted by another building, long since demolished, whose former footprint is now incorporated into the present day Bank Square.

The building was subject to extensive alterations from around 1970 until the late 1990s. Despite the clear intention to give the interior the appearance of a building originating in the 17th century, the adaptations to achieve that aim destroyed the real original fabric and hid an original timber frame. As the more recent decorative linings were removed the original fabric became apparent and is depicted in the photographic record.


West Devon Borough Council, 2009, Tavistock Conservation Area Management Plan, 28, 39 (Report - non-specific). SDV351411.

There are a number of buildings in Market Street which date to the 16th or 17th centuries, where a detailed archaeological evaluation will be required before any work can be contemplated.
