Brewery and other buildings

The brewery was described as a "group of 2- and 3-storey rubble buildings" with a "3-storey brewhouse with an octagonal-section, red-and-white-brick chimney", with all the buildings having pantiled roofs.

Most of the brewery has been demolished, though the entrance to the courtyard remains.
