Event description
Once the butt of jokes by its more upmarket Cotswold neighbours, Stroud grew to became an industrial behemoth - the capital of cloth

About this event

Known disparagingly as the Bottoms, Stroud grew to be the textile capital of the Cotswolds. It clothed the Redcoats, supplied trade goods to the Native Americans, and gave the world a place to put its billiard balls. It may even have supplied the cloth for the first US flag! On this guided walk we explore the growth of Stroud from backwater to behemoth and on the way discover the last fatal pistol duel, Blackbeard the Pirate, the Napoleonic hero who almost became a schoolboy statistic and the man who made the suburban weekend.

The tour ends at the Stroud Brewery - where you get a free beer to toast Stroud's most famous son.
