Welcome to Filkins!
“Half the wealth of England rides on the back of the sheep.”
The history of the Cotswolds is a story of sheep’s wool and limestone.
For 500 years the sheep created the rolling Cotswold landscape, and money from the wool enabled the building of the mellow limestone churches, manor houses and Cotswold cottages we love so well. Generations of shepherds, wool merchants, weavers, quarrymen and stonemasons have all made their mark on this land, and, here in Filkins, Cotswold Woollen Weavers continues in this ancient tradition.
“If winter doesn’t rock your boat,
Stay snug inside a woollen coat!”
