History

The Castle Hill Farm complex was established in the early C19 as Fox's Brewery and continued as a working brewery until 1950. The surviving buildings date mainly from the second quarter C19 to the late C19, and consist of the owner's house, a brewery range with adjacent malting tower, a large granary with dray house, a stable block and a brewery office. They are ranged loosely around a courtyard

Exterior

A low L-shaped, 2-storey stable block, probably late C18 with later additions. Shallow-pitched slate roof. In 3 main sections, the central part of rubble stone and with 2 plain entrances with plain wooden lintels. Modern boarded door to Left hand one and the door missing to R with a plain shuttered window above. Continuously-roofed with this, a 2-bay brick addition to the L, abutting the yard's W gate pier. Entrance to the R with cambered head and missing door. Plain shuttered window above. To the L on the ground floor, a 2-light window, cambered as before. To the R of the central section an advanced gabled wing, forming an L-shape with the main block. External stepped first floor-access at the gable-end. Ground floor rebuilt in brick in the mid C19. 2 stable-doors with cambered heads, that to the R with replaced boarded door.

Interior

Mid-Victorian cast iron stalls and brick floor.
