Uffculme Jam and Cider Factory. 1974

On the corner of East Street, High Street and Ashley Road is the listed building that has been a brewery and general business building. In this 1974 picture, the building was being used as a Jam and Cider Factory.

It was originally built by William Furze, in 1858. The red brick construction sits on a stone plinth. The tower has a slate roof clevely concealed by parapet.

The polygonal building is four stories high and has a date stone set high which reads ‘Built W.A.D.F. 1858‘.

The Old Brewery is a prominent landmark in Uffculme.

Furze’s Probate of will and codicils lists simply him as, ‘Brewer‘. The documents (reference O/064/008) are available to the public, at the London Metropolitan Archives. The documents were drafted in 1845 and 1855.
