Lodgemore Mill has been producing woollen cloth since the 1300s when a fulling mill belonged to the Spillman family.  Today, "WSP Textiles" continue to make highly specialised cloth for tennis balls, snooker, pool and casino tables.  Clients include Wimbledon and the World Snooker Association, to name but a few.
