Although Stroud parish was originally part of Bisley, its identity as a distinct unit had begun to emerge by the 13th century. The manor houses of Paganhill, Over Lypiatt and Nether Lypiatt formed the most ancient dwelling places within what was to become the Stroud parish, but the parish would take its name from a tiny area, first recorded in 1221. Called 'la Strode', the record refers to a piece of marshy ground at the confluence of the Slad Brook and the river Frome. The settlement itself, however, seems to have originated a little further up the hill, the earliest houses being built on the better-drained slope at the end of the ridge which lies between the two streams. The origins of the settlement are rooted in Gloucestershire's medieval wool trade, the occupations of spinning and weaving being a strong, ever evolving tradition, which continued to influence Stroud's development well into the 20th century.

In the early 20th century, Stroud was still a thriving manufacturing town, with a number of large employers with substantial premises in and around the town centre. The Stroud mills have a history of diversification. The technical developments of the 19th century and competition with mills in the north and Europe had threatened the security of the long established cloth and textile industry. Several firms diversified into more specialist businesses, notably the manufacture of clothing. In the years before the First World War, Stroud had three such factories, which, collectively, did much for the economic prosperity of the town. These were the Holloway firm's buildings on Threadneedle Street and Brick Row and the landmark Hill Paul Building on Cheapside. Hill Paul was purpose built as a clothing factory, opening for business at the turn of the century. It was taken over by Hill Paul and Co. in 1902 and continued in business until the early 1970s. In 1903, a rail service began operating between Chalford and Gloucester, via Stroud, with numerous Halts along the route. The service proved extremely popular, opening up the industrial Stroud Valley and being well used by the local workforce and shoppers until its closure in 1964.

The twentieth century brought a final end to the canal system. The Thames and Severn Canal closed in stages in 1927 and 1933, and the Stroudwater closed in 1954. 1966 saw the closure of the Midland Railway Station at Stroud, the line having previously been restricted to goods-only services in 1947. Many buildings have been rescued through further industrial diversification, with new businesses being established in former mills and their outbuildings. Some mills have undergone conversion for even more diverse uses, including residential and office accommodation. In general, the 20th century's contribution to the townscape has not been overwhelmingly positive. Large-scale redevelopment has often created large and insensitively sited new buildings, including Merrywalks shopping centre and the Police Station. Increased car use has resulted in large carparks and road widening schemes, involving much demolition and disruption to the historic pattern of Stroud. Cornhill, the link road constructed in the 1980s, ripped through the Cross, resulting in a loss of the continuity between High Street and Nelson Street and severing the link between the old medieval nucleus and Stroud's first 'suburb' to the east. Dr Newton's Way bypass, which broadly follows the course of the old Midland Railway, was created in the 1980s and today marks the south western extent of the town.
