Exeter's Lower Market was built in 1835-6 by Charles Fowler. In 1943, the Deputy Director of the National Buildings Record, John Summerson, visited Exeter to undertake measured surveys of a number of bombed buildings that were under threat of demolition. Lower Market had been severely damaged in May 1942, yet it was not until 1960 that the shell of the building was finally demolished.
