About this Event

Buying and selling is a main function of most towns. Some market towns with especially strong advantages attracted more trade and evolved to have much more than a market place, a parish church and a few houses. Leeds became important for trading locally-made woollen cloth, especially after the mid-sixteenth century. The street where the twice-weekly cloth market was held is still one of the main trading streets in the compact retail area. How did the business of trading home-made lengths of woven wool lead to the development of a place with 1000 shops? And how is trading in the age of the internet influencing Leeds city centre?

We start at The Adelphi LS10 1JQ just south of Leeds Bridge. You can carry on to lunch, shopping or an event.
