Do not go out of your way to visit. It is at the top of the high street. Basic low stone open building with wooden sides and a roof.

Dunster is a lovely little town and of course the Yarn market is an interesting landmark. Shame there wasn't much info about it.

Well maintained covered but open market place. Not a good photo opportunity because of parked cars and passing traffic. Worth a visit if you are in the area but not interesting enough to make a special visit.

Interesting feature at the end of Dunster's High Street, the Yarn Market holds an important historical significance for the village. The village itself is well worth a wander round, with the Yarn Market one of its key features.

Does what it says on the tin. It’s a cover for the old yarn market. Lovely bit of history, fabulous condition considering it’s age. Nice to see but not a must see with young kiddies. Lovely shops nearby though.

The medieval yarn market has a prominent position at the end of the high street. It is well worth a visit and cannot be missed if you are in the village.

A really great place to visit, but come early, especially on a dry summers day. It was full to bursting when we were there, so well done National Trust.
