to S of No. 28
Outbuilding with stone water tanks. C17/18. Coursed limestone rubble; corrugated
iron loan-to roof. Rectangular plan. West end has tall doorway. North wall has
window opening with splayed jambs and south wall forms part of north boundary wall
of The Old Brewery (q.v.). Three semi-circular arched vaults to east, that to
north used as through entry and that to south having chamfered pointed-arched doorway.
Interior: stone water tanks, with drain off to south-east corner. Probably formed a
reservoir for the supply of water to The Priory. Documents from 1663 have referred
to cisterns on the site for conveying water to the house, which was used for cloth
making during its occupancy by the Methuen family in the C17 and C18.
