The name of the town dates back to around 1190 and comes from the Old English 'felepe' (hay) and 'tun' (field/farm). Filton does not really have much of a history until the 20th century where it is mentioned as being a small farming village, still detached from the city of Bristol. But between the First and Second World Wars, the village expanded and then became a suburb of Bristol. There are a number of listed buildings in Filton; such as St Peter's Church which, according to The Diocese of Worcester's records, dates back the 12th or 13th century, its architecture also suggests this.

A potentially serious defect, subsidence occurs when the ground beneath a property is unable to support it.
Perhaps you're unsure as to whether the cracks in your Filton house are signs of subsidence or just signs of settlement process that normally occurs in new buildings. If so, contact our surveyors who will be happy to assist.

In around 400 BC, a surveying tool called a Groma was invented. This tool consisted of a long, vertical staff, with a horizontal cross-piece mounted on it. A plumb line was attached to each end of the cross-piece. It is believed that the Groma originated in Mesopotamia (today's Iraq), imported by the Greeks in 300 BC, and hence taken to Rome.
