In the past both Cullompton and Tiverton economies had a large component of wool and cloth manufacture. Both ancient towns owe their early growth and prosperity to the wool trade which caused the towns to grow rapidly in the 16th and 17th Centuries. Many wealthy wool merchants added to the towns' heritage: for example, John Lane in Cullompton and John Greenway in Tiverton.
