The Glove Factory

62 Oxford Street

Woodstock was a noted centre for the manufacture of sheep and deer hide gloves. These used to be sewn by women working at home, but from the late 19th century, small factories developed in backyards. At one time there were up to ten factories in the town. This one was named after master Edmund Webley and was an active glove factory until it closed in the 1950s.
