1. (South Side)
Base New Brewery
SK 2422 NE 2/139
SK 2423 SE 4/139


Built 1864-65, a large red brick brewery complex ranged in 2 and 3 storeys
along the sides of a deep and narrow rectangular yard. The 4-storey block
to the centre contains the brewhouse. The walls, in the characteristic brewery
style of Burton, are articulated by shallow full height arcaded recesses containing
the windows which are of the sash or pivot type. The ends of the farms facing
the road are treated as double gables with copings and kneelers. Oculi in
the gables and blind giant arcading in a tripartite grouping similar in detail
to the side elevations. At the north end of the yard on the 1st floor of the
side ranges are galleried cast iron water tanks carried on cast iron columns.
The eastern range contains one of the last 2 traditional "Union" lines for
natural fermentation in Burton and thus the original internal plan. The New
Brewery is virtually the oldest remaining brewery in the town.
