These are the one of the set of steps up to Market Buildings which were refurbished a few years ago. It used to be a proper meat, fish and fruit and veg market and now it is a bit soulless and a bit dull. It has a few shops in it, and a couple of businesses including the Guernsey probation service have offices upstairs. It seems to me they have missed a bit of a trick with it though. It could have been a lovely, quirky, crafty arcade. Instead it is a bit boring.
However, it is built out of the most beautiful Guernsey granite which is a gorgeous pinky colour and seems to glow in the sunlight (not that we have seen much sun today though!)
