The Bull Ring developed into the main retail market area for Birmingham as the town grew into a modern industrial city.The earliest known building for public meetings in the town with any architectural record is the High Cross, which stood within the Bull Ring.During the clearance, small streets such as The Shambles, Cock (or Well) Street and Corn Cheaping, which had existed before the Bull Ring, were removed.The Shambles was originally a row of butchers' stores, situated close to the road leading from the location where bulls were slaughtered.The slope drops approximately 15 metres (49 ft) from New Street to St Martin's Church which is very visible near the church.

The Street Commissioners decided that a sheltered market hall was needed.The name Mercer Street is first mentioned in the Survey of Birmingham of 1553.This was a result of the prominence of the area in the cloth trade.Construction of the Market Hall, designed by Charles Edge (an architect of Birmingham Town Hall), began in February 1833.It was completed by Dewsbury and Walthews at a cost of £20,000 (£44,800 if the price of acquiring the land is included) and opened on 12 February 1835 and contained 600 market stalls.They bought the market rights from the lord of the manor and, by 1832, all properties on site had been purchased, with exception of two, whose owners demanded a higher price.To fund the purchase of these properties, two buildings were constructed either side of the market hall and the leases sold at auction.A series of events in Birmingham's political history saw the area become a popular meeting place for demonstrations and speeches from leaders of working class movements during the 1830s and 1840s.In 1839, the Bull Ring was the location of the Bull Ring Riots, which resulted in widespread vandalism and destruction of property.By the end of the century the street was known as Spiceal Street.Despite being overcrowded and cramped, many houses on the street had gardens as indicated by an advertisement for a residential property in 1798.
