Black plaque № 13093 in Winchester

This street led to the Winchester Staple, established in 1326 as one of the ten sites in England where wool could be bought and sold for export. Merchants from Flanders, Bordeaux and Lombardy traded here. The Staple fell out of use when the rules regulating the wool industry were relaxed in the late 14th century, and the area was later used as the City rubbish dump.
