Old Brewery, Alston


The former late 18th century brewery is located by the River South Tyne in Alston. The former brewery complex included the brewmaster's house (now 'South Tyne House'), a tavern, a waterwheel house, a wine, spirit and beer store, a brewhouse, a cooperage, cottages, a transport house that originally accommodated stables on the ground floor and a hayloft above, and the brewery reservoir. However, by the 1870s the brewery was in financial difficulties and went into administration. Some of the buildings were then used as a hosiery from the late 19th century up to c.1940. Alston Laundry and Public Bathhouse operated on the site from about 1895-1905. Between c.1890 and 1910 the former brewhouse was used by Alston Dairy Co.[1] South Tyne House and parts of the former brewery are Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
