Doncaster City Council’s wish to see the city turned into a prime shopping destination has been given a boost by the refurbishment of its historic wool market into an enclosed destination hub for local traders and eating and drinking. The market’s new aluminium doors and curtain walling, which allow light deep into the space, was supplied by Senior Architectural Systems, which coincidentally has its head office down the road in Denaby. One of 10 in the town’s Market Place, the £7.6 million project saw 75,000 people through its doors on its opening weekend.
