Full Description

By 1880 a brewery had been established on the north side of Clifton Road, as shown on the 1st edition 25" OS map of that date. By the end of the century the brewery buildings had been converted into a cheese factory. Some of the buildings have now been incorporated into the much larger Nestle factory which was first established on the site in 1912. (1) In 1876 the brewery was run by Wilson & Cooper, brewers and maltsters, becoming Wilson, Allaway & Co. Ltd in 1891. (2)
