Full Description

All that remains of the substantial Manchester Brewery and malthouse complex is the three storey finely-detailed brick Manchester Street Maltings of the 1880s, with a separate squarish kiln house at the south-west side. There is a fine large timber sack hoist enclosure on the south end of the malthouse. The kiln house has a steep pyramidal roof topped with its original louvre vent. The main brewery [SMR 32120] has been demolished, as has the c.1870 Surrey Street malthouse now replaced by a block of flats. The remaining buildings are in mixed commercial use.
