The Fleece


Europe, United Kingdom, City of Bristol

The Wool Hall in Bristol, England, is an historic building in St Thomas Street, constructed in 1830 to house the city's wool market. It is one of the earlier works of Richard Shackleton Pope, and has been described as 'the first quasi-industrial building in Bristol to attempt a real architectural facade'. The building now houses offices and a live music venue, appropriately named The Fleece. It is an example of the Bristol Byzantine style and has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II listed building.
