Welcome to our Website

LogoMarket drayton welcome signWelcome to the official website of Market Drayton Town Council which has been designed and constructed to provide what we hope will be a valuable resource of information to all residents of the town and visitors.

Market Drayton was granted its charter in 1254 and today still holds one of the liveliest weekly street markets in the area. It retains much of its medieval street pattern with red sandstone and mellow brick buildings mingling with black and white half-timbered properties.


Market Drayton is twinned with Pezenas in France and Arlon in Belgium
