100 Places - Industry, Trade & Commerce

Napoleon called England a nation of shopkeepers.  For millennia, England has bartered, built, forged and fabricated its way around the globe. 

What are the places associated with what we've made, where we buy and sell, or where we connect with the rest of the world?

We think everybody should know about the places in England that have witnessed some of the most important historic events.

Tell us about somewhere you think needs to be in the list of 100 Places
