The site of Wool yard reflects this history — it was first home to a gin distillery from 1819, then generations of trades connected to the wool and cotton industry — Thomas Legg and Sons, Touach and Co, Arthur Smart is the only remaining presence of the company on Bermondsey and Sons — until the 1950s when it became a food factory. As industries left from the 1960s onwards, new uses were found for the buildings and spaces in the area with many warehouses used by the antique dealers of the relocated Bermondsey antique market.
