Brewhouse: the main brewhouse of the Greene King complex.
Opened January 1939. In red brick with stone dressings; flat
roof with parapet. Art Deco style.

storey topped by a heavy stone band. 4 rectangular windows in
deep reveals to the ground storey. The upper front has a range
of 5 windows rising the whole height of the building, arranged
1: 3: 1 with the centre breaking forward slightly: the 2 outer
narrow and rectangular, in plain reveals, the 3 central
semicircular headed, set into double-arched reveals.
Small-paned cast-iron louvred window frames throughout.
The main block of the building rises one storey higher than

the upper storeys heavy supporting ironwork by Robert Boby &
Sons of Bury St Edmunds. One of the very few brewhouses built
during the interwar period and an impressive design.
