12/69 Brewery and adjoining
store to south-east
of the Three Tuns Inn


Tower brewery and store. Between 1880 and 1888, enlargement of late-
C17 building. Timber framed with painted brick nogging, coursed
limestone rubble plinth and end wall to left, red brick to right,
and slate roofs. L-plan; 1½ framed bay store to left and gabled
tower brewery at right-angles to right. Framing: square panels,
3 up to wall plate. Store: 2 storeys Lateral brick stack to rear.
First floor window to left and central boarded loft door; ground
floor boarded double doors off-centre to left, and boarded segmental-
headed doors to right. Tower brewery: 3 storeys, and attic. Semi-
integral transverse brick stack to left, stack to rear, and louvred
gabled ridge-vent. Segmental-headed boarded loft door in gable-end
with bracketed hoist balcony; 2 tall second floor segmental-headed
2-light small-paned windows; 3 tall first floor segmental-headed
windows with louvres below and 2 opening panes above; central ground
floor segmental-headed boarded double doors. Painted lettering on
second floor: "THREE/TUNS/BREWERY". Interior: known as a tower
brewery because it is gravity fed, the building retains most of its
original fittings, including the grit hoppers and liquor tank in the
attic, the mash tank on the second floor, the steam boiler and rare
open copper cooler (current regulations demand enclosed coolers) on the
first floor, and fermenting vats on the ground floor; empty and full
barrels are kept in store to left. This is a rare survival of a working
small rural brewery. The late-C17 timber framed block to left has a
complete set of carpenter's marks.
