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.

From the Bridge at Uffculme

Little has changed in this view of Bridge Street, Uffculme. Probably taken in the early 70s, as the railway lines have been removed, although the level crossing gates are still shown.

The Esso garage appears to have the name of the proprietor shown as Featherstone. Perhaps you can recall the Featherstone’s or are part of the family?
