About Brackley

Brackley is a market town and civil parish in West Northamptonshire, England, bordering Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, 19 miles from Oxford and 22 miles from Northampton. Historically a market town based on the wool and lace trade, it was built on the intersecting trade routes between London, Birmingham, the Midlands, Cambridge and Oxford. Brackley Charter Market is held on the Piazza outside the Town Hall each Friday from around 8am until 3pm. The Market’s origins date back to the early 1700’s, when it was considered an important centre, and where the Town Crier announced any news or information.

Although its form has changed over the years, it is still a meeting place for many people. A varied selection of traders currently include: fruit and vegetables, fresh fish and shellfish, plants, bulbs and shrubs, cakes, bread, cheese and olives, clothes, samosas and pet food. The Market is operated by Brackley Town Council.
