Nos 66 to 69 (consec)
(Formerly listed as
SZ 4989 SE 2/22A Malthouse)


The Office of the Brewery was the Manor House of Newport dating from
the early C19, but it has been very much altered and added to. Adjoining
it to the east, however is a contemporary Malthouse somewhat similar
to the same Company's Malthouse facing the Quay in Sea Street and to
another in the High Street at (West Cowes. The,building is of 3 storeys,
grey headers with red brick dressings and a gable end tiled roof.
It has 9 window bays set in a blind arcade of grey header piers with stone
imposts and round headed red brick arches, the centre one is broader and
has a keystone. The 4 eastern bays contain 2 storeys of windows with
ornamental cast iron grilles, rectangular on the ground floor,
semi-circular on the 1st floor. The other bays retain the 1st floor grille
but have had sash windows inserted on the ground floor. Above the arches
on the 2nd floor are later segment headed windows and a loft door over the
centre arch. To the east is a slightly later block of 2 storeys in gault
brick, the roof hidden behind a parapet and moulded rendered cornice. The
front is articulated by 3 slightly recessed round headed bays containing
2 storeys of windows, divided by a block stone string course. The ground
floor windows are rectangular with grilles, as on adjoining Malthouse,
on the 1st floor recessed round headed with glazing bars, except in
centre bay which has a large double loft door. To the east of this
block is the entrance to the yard, at its northern end facing the Street
a store and adjoining it to the east an office building which is about
contemporary with the last 3 bays on the street. It is of 2 storeys
gault brick with parapet, moulded cornice and frieze, a ground floor
rendered cornice and frieze. Brick pilasters with rendered Doric
capitals articulate the ground and 1st floors. 3 windows, recessed,
sash glazing bars, block sills and flat brick arches. Central recessed
double doors of 2 fielded panels, blind semi-circular fanlight and brick
arch over. The store is late C19, 4 storeys in yellow brick with a full
width red brick pediment with a bull's eye with red brick surround and
keystones, red brick string courses to each floor. 4 windows with loft
doors in centre, except on ground floor (the westernmost windows cut
off by wing up to 3rd floor). The 3rd floor and ground floor windows
are round headed with red brick arches, the 1st and 2nd floor windows
have segmental red brick arches. The ground floor has a wide door to
the west set in a red brick rusticated surround with elliptical arch
and keystones.
