Stick Manufacture in the Stroud Valleys, by Stephen Mills; Reprinted from: Gloucestershire Society for Industrial Archaeology Journal for 1996 pages 35-41; http://www.gsia.org.uk/reprints/1996/gi199635.pdf: “Amongst the industries that set up shop in the Stroud valleys, perhaps one of the most peculiar was the manufacture of walking and umbrella sticks, plus their associated handles and other fittings. From at least the 1840s, throughout the valleys, sticks were produced, predominantly in redundant woollen cloth mills. . . . Although the new century was to see significant changes in the market for sticks, the picture was not entirely gloomy. Many of the smaller makers had by now gone to the wall, however alongside Harrisons, at least three other companies were destined to carry on manufacture for a considerable time. These included the Hoopers of Griffin Mill, who operated up to the mid 1930s. . . .”
