For over three centuries from the time of Elizabeth I a felt-hat industry flourished in South Gloucestershire, supplying perhaps 40 million hoods for Bristol’s hatters and Bristol’s exports. Yet this important trade has been largely overlooked in the history of the region. Here Dr Heal tells of the rise of the industry to its peak around the end of the eighteenth century.
