Buttercross, Otley Market Place, painting by Pete Lapish
c1900. View of Otley Market Place at the turn of the twentieth century in this watercolour painting by Yorkshire artist, Pete Lapish. It shows the Buttercross, on the left, and the Jubilee Clock, built in 1888 to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. An open air market, held on Fridays and Saturdays, is still a popular attraction today. Some images by Pete Lapish are available to purchase as postcards or greetings cards from Leeds Visitor Centre - see our 'useful links' page.
