Harveys is encapsulated by splendid architecture, forming part of one of the finest unspoilt Victorian streetscapes around.
The Woolshops derives its name from its unique history within the town, where in medieval times the street was known for buying and selling wool from the nearby farmers, which was then sold to cottage weavers, to be later sold as pieces of cloth, in the historic Piece Hall.
The Shopping Centre was part of the redevelopment of the town in the 1970’s and 80’s and was originally planned as a much larger site. The Woolshops was developed in 2 phases, the first part being in 1983 which accommodated the listed buildings along the Woolpack and added a car park to the town centre offering.
