Breweries and other buildings

The Nungate Brewery was described as "a small building used as a brewery in good repair with kiln and the necessary offices attached"and later as "consisting of brew-house, dwelling-house, and others on one side of the road, and a kiln, granary, and malt barn on the other side of it".

The brewery and maltbarn survive today, converted into private housing.
