Brook Cottage - A Brief History - Brook Cottage was one of several buildings which fronted the site for the old Hat Factory which operated from here in the late 18th century. The deeds show that the house was built in 1790 and this property was the "Coachman's House". From 1888 to 1912 Brook Cottage was believed to be one of the buildings in the mill yard used by John Else and his sons, William & Robert for the bottling of aerated water made from Lea Wood Spring.
