History

The fruit exchange in Liverpool was built in 1888.

You can feel the history of the place as you walk around the three floors which made up the Fruit Exchange.

Grade II listed, it was built in 1888 as a railway goods depot for the London and North Western Railway (to serve Exchange Station on Tithebarn Street) and was converted into a fruit exchange in 1923 by James B. Hutchins.

It became the main trading point for fruit within the city and dealt with the majority of fruit imports coming into Liverpool.

Hundreds of people would cram into the excgange halls and bid for fruit which had just arrived in Liverpool from all around the world.

The explore

Hi all. been wanting to take a look at this place for a good while now but with it being off the radar for so long i didn't think i stood a chance... but with the mornings still dark we thought ok lets go take a look...

What a great success. access required a little bit of brain power.

This has to be one of my favourite explores to date. so grand and the dust was unreal!
