Yarm is another market town that we had not visited before, and possibly wouldn’t have if it wasn’t part of this quest. It’s a really pretty town with some cobbled streets, set on a meander of the River Tees. Parts of the town are dominated by a 43 arch rail viaduct, opened in 1852 and now Grade II listed. The old Town Hall building stands in the centre of the town and was built in 1710 to replace an old Tollhouse. Over the years it has been used as a court, a market and even a public toilet! The Waterstones in Yarm is in a red brick building located in a former bank.
