We've been working on some new features.

About this mod

Turns Whiterun into a more vibrant Economic hub. There's a market, a tailors, a herbalist, and an Inn. There's the Mayor's house, the Doctors, Bookstore and a School. Further afield there's a Metalworks, a Mine, a Leatherworking camp and the Apothecary Guild. It adds citizens, hunters, herders, guards, farmers, workers, followers and animals..

I always loved Whiterun and I found myself trying an increasing number of mods to 'flesh out' the surrounding area. 
This is my attempt at adding a little extra life to Whiterun, whilst ensuring that the surrounding area is fully compatible with some of the more popular mods. It will hopefully work well with all the mods that I feel when used in conjunction make Whiterun the kind of place you find yourself not leaving for hours on end. 


A Market area with a fountain, a central square and The Whiterun Inn complete with beergarden and basement
Several stalls selling mostly raw materials (so as to not reduce the need to travel into Whiterun itself)
A Tailor's Shop and housing for the NPCs
A warehouse to be broken into if so desired and overseen by Mayor Chunderwitt
A Butchers, visited each day by different Herders providing meat.
A Guard house and Townhall
A Stable for Mules, a new farm, and a Fishing Dock
Moon Windwalker's Apothecary
A Healer's Surgery, A Book Repository and Whiterun School

Some locations to explore beyond the Market place:

Whiterun Metalworks and Aeldsten Mine
A Leatherworking Camp
Whiterun Apothecary's Guild
A Dwarven artefact Shop
Many camps for Herders, Lumberjacks and Wandering Traders
Two new Gates, guarding the main road

Over 70 new NPCs:

Merchants, Traders who ferry 'imaginary goods' and Citizens

Whiterun Valley 1.41: The Market Place

There are currently 2 separate versions of WRV:

Whiterun Valley - FULL Original Version (places the Market outside the City Walls and has all original additional sites)
Whiterun Valley - LITE (by Mnikjom) which cuts back on some locations, changes names and items to be more lore-friendly

Willybach's Whiterun - this is a separate mod - check it out if you would prefer to have a lot of this content and much more within the city itself. Mod available here: 

>>>Willybach's Whiterun<<<

There are also plans for additional STANDALONE versions:

Whiterun Market + City Outskirts
Whiterun Metalworks + Aeldsten Mine
Skinner's Leatherworks
