Woolaston is a large parish incorporating the isolated settlements of Woolaston, High Woolaston, Woolaston Slade, Woolaston Woodside and Woolaston Common. For the purpose of this website I have also included both the hamlets of Netherend and Brookend which are closest to the main A48 Gloucester to Chepstow Road.
The Carpenters Arms was situated on Woolaston Common and is believed to have been on the northern side of the unclassified road almost opposite the Rising Sun Inn.
William Tudor is described in the 1876 Morris Directory as a beer retailer. He was the owner and occupier of the Carpenters Arms in 1891 and 1903. At that time the pub was a free house with an annual rateable value of £15.7s.0d. The Carpenters Arms was licensed as a beer house.
