9/25 Former Little
Coggeshall Brewery


Brewery, disused. Early C19. Red brick in Flemish bond, and timber framed and
weatherboarded, roofed with handmade red plain tiles, red clay pantiles and
slate. Compact group of adjacent industrial buildings comprising (1) brewing
house aligned N-S, brick, timber framed and weatherboarding and wooden louvres
above with hipped roof of plain tiles and pantiles, (2) tapering round chimney
on square base to SW, (3) timber framed block to N, aligned E-W, with tiled
hipped roof (beer store no. 1), (4) small brick building to SW with tiled hipped
roof, and connecting link, (5) long range to E of blocks 1 and 2, aligned N-S,
with hipped slate roof, and (6) malthouse to E, aligned E-W, of brick with slate
roof, half-hipped at E end only. Mainly 2 storeys. The S elevation of block 1
has two 2-storey recesses with segmental arches, the left with a blank aperture
on the ground floor and a louvre above, both with segmental arches, the right
with a casement on the ground floor and a blank aperture above, with similar
arches; central double doors; the upper part is almost wholly clad with pivoted
louvres. The S elevation of block 5 has on the ground floor 2 plain boarded
doors (one broken) and a C20 casement in original aperture with segmental arch,
and on the first floor one C19 horizontal sash of 8+8 lights and one blank
aperture; dentilled eaves cornice. The W end of block 6 (facing the entrance
from Bridge Street) has a wide entrance with semi- elliptical arch,
weatherboarded above. Block 1 retains a large plinth for a brewing pan, with
furnace below. Block 5 is partly fitted out as stables, with wooden stall
divisions and hayracks. Most of the buildings are disused at time of survey,
May 1987, or in limited use for storage. A picture-framing workshop occupies
part of the ground floor of block 5 and the whole first floor of block 6. This
was formerly Gardner's Brewery, which went out of use in 1940, but was retained
in working order as 'shadow' premises against the possibility of bomb damage to
Greene King's brewery. (J.S. Gardner (ed.), Coggeshall, Essex 1951, 32). A map
of 1832 records the present buildings (Essex Record Office, D/DBs).
