A proud past. A rich future.
That’s how we think of the Wool Exchange at least.
It is a building rich in history and a place that has touched the lives, careers, hearts and memories of the people of Bradford. It’s a fascinating place, once called the centre of the wool world, and has a trunk full of stories, rumours, gossip and changes – much like its role throughout the 19th century when wool was a very social trade and the market news, latest gossip, friendships and business deals were the chatter throughout the city.
It was, and now is once more, a focal point for the city; then surrounded by fabric, sweet and clothing stores and generating a “hum” it is said. That buzz is now returning to Bradford thanks to the regeneration and new trades opening opposite the original Exchange building and the opportunities the Wool Exchange can provide for new and satellite businesses.
As they said then, and we’ll say now, “See you on ‘change.”
