Statement of Interest

Despite fenestration changes (from single to bipartite windows) which have affected the overall character of the building, Brewstead remains an important building in Limekilns and is situated in a prominent position at the beginning of Main Street. The name of the building and the proximity of the later Bruce Arms suggest a connection for this part of Limekilns with brewing.
