Breweries and other buildings

The Sidegate Brewery was arranged around a courtyard and consisted of a brewery, malt kiln, granaries, cellars, steam engine house, stable, guano house, and garden.

Much of the complex has since been converted into private housing in what is now known as Brewery Close.
