Wool Exchange

Built in 1867 in the Gothic Revival style, the Wool Exchange was the centre of the world's wool trade until trading was ended in the 1960s. The statues at the entrance portray Bishop Blaize, patron saint of wool combers, and Edward III who encouraged the growth of the wool industry. Today the building houses retailers and restaurants, including a news agency, pizzeria, café etc.
