Flaxley was once a major industrial centre. The Forest of Dean was an important medieval ironworking region, and the earliest forge in Flaxley is recorded in the 12th century. The Westbury brook was the site of five water mills, and at Guns Mill by Flaxley was one the main gun foundries of the English Civil War era.
