English: Wool is a village in the Purbeck district of Dorset, England. The village has a population of 4,118 (2001), though the population has fluctuated over the past 15 years, due to the proximity of military institutions, reaching a high of 4,300 in 1992. The village lies at a historic bridging point on the River Frome, half way between Dorchester and Wareham. Woolbridge Manor House, a 14th century building, is a prominent feature just outside the village and the location of Tess' honeymoon in Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles. Other prominent features of the village include the medieval church of Holy Rood, the South Western Main Line from London Waterloo to Weymouth, and the thatched cottages along Spring Street.
