Adjacent to the 18th century warehouse accommodating the Poole Museum is a 600 year old stone building. It is one storey and has wooden double doors like a barn. This is the old wool house where wool was stored in the 15th century before being shipped from the Old Quay.
Together with the Old Customs House and other Georgian quayside buildings, this is a very attractive precinct.
A New Purpose, A new Poole History Centre
The Town Cellars is now the Local History Centre and Archives. Visitors wishing to delve deeper into Poole’s heritage or tracing family history will find old maps and charts, historical records of trade links with Newfoundland and other overseas ports, photographs and historical newspapers.
