Built for Christies the hatters as a result of labour troubles in London and
Stockport, this is an important early and now almost unique survival of a non-
woollen mill in rural setting in this area. It represents the survival of the
Industrial Revolution in Frampton Cotterell which had since the early C17 been a
centre of felt hatting due to its position to the west (damp side) of the
Cotswolds. (Sources: Christies Archive Deposit, Stockport; Spittal, Frampton
