The house on the corner of Bristol Road and Filton Road used to be called "Wool Factory House". There was a long building behind it which has now been converted to the houses in Filton Road. In 1827 it was owned the company Messrs Tuckett and the business was conducted by Philip Debell Tuckett. The 1851 census shows William Perry, his wife and 8 children living there and he is described as a wool sorter.
There is a long history of wool hat manufacturing in nearby Winterbourne and the wool factory may have had links to this.
A booklet titled "Hatters' Trails - walks through Frampton Cotterell and Watley's End" has just been published and copies can be obtained from Frenchay Village Museum.
