Breweries and other buildings

The Coldstream Brewery was founded in the second half of the 1790s and passed through the hands of a number of owners before being acquired by the Coldstream Brewery Co Ltd.

The brewery consisted of "an attractive group of 1- and 2- storey rubble buildings around a courtyard", parts of which survive today as housing.
