The site was subsequently absorbed into the textile manufacturing complex developed by the Ward and Brettles families, specialists in hosiery manufacture. The firm of Ward, Brettles and Ward was the largest hosiery manufacturer in the late C19. Brook Cottage became the factory managers dwelling during this time. The association with hosiery manufacture in Belper lasted until the late C20.
