639-1/11/683 (North side)
Greene King Brewery Building on
south-west corner of St Mary's


Outbuildings: part of the Greene King brewery buildings on the
corner of Westgate and St Mary's Square. C16 and C17, encased
in mid-C19 brick. Red brick and plaintiled roof to exterior;
timber-framed interior.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys: the oldest surviving building of the
Greene King Breweries, originally part of the former Maulkin's
maltings. The Westgate Street frontage has 3 blocked window
openings on the ground storey: 2-light, slatted, with
segmental-arched heads. The 1st storey also had 3 windows, now
bricked up. The St Mary's Square frontage is in English Bond,
divided into 4 bays on the upper storey by recessed panels in
the brickwork.
INTERIOR: the C16 range along St Mary's Square is in 4 bays
with very heavy plain closely-set joists to the ground storey
ceiling. The C17 range along Westgate Street, also in 4 bays,
has very substantial cambered beams to the ground storey
ceiling associated with joists set on edge. The trusses have
tie beams with long arched braces and the roof has a
ridge-piece, one row of clasped and one row of butt purlins
and the remains of windbraces. Queen struts to the trusses are
probably a later insertion. The floor is paved with large
slabs and has a shallow trough running through it.
