Stable Cottage - Phoenix Brewery

Thanks to Dail Whiting for the following words and photos.


Attached are a few photos of Stable Cottage, once situated on the north side of the old Phoenix Brewery yard.

They were taken not long before they were demolished, and though they are not particularly good photos, the are at least a record.

Most were taken from the footpath which leads from Leney Road to The Brucks. Just one was taken from my neighbour's garden.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get a picture of the south side, as the whole of the brewery yard was gated and locked.

The first photo showing a large white door was at the west end of the building. This was the old stables.

I have also attached two maps to identify Stable Cottage location.

The colour tithe map was compiled in 1839, and the OS map in 1896.
