Polden and Feltham

Clement Polden and William James Cockrell Feltham, who were brothers-in-law, started their carpentry and wheelwrighting business in Chitterne in 1878. Their yard was on the Tilshead Road, flanked by Pitts House one side and Flint Cottage and Chitterne Farm the other.

Almost 100 years later, in 1972, the business closed. Alban and Owen Polden were the last to run it. Their former premises are now a private house, called Flint House.
