Today’s Heritage Walk visited the outside of the Cliff Brewery in Ipswich. The brewery, founded by Thomas Cobbold, was established in Ipswich in 1746. The doorway on the north side includes some reused architectural features.

The brewery is currently a building ‘at risk‘, and is in the Victorian Society’s Top Ten Most Endangered Buildings list.

There are hopes that the building, currently owned by Pigeon Investment, will be used for new accommodation, a museum, and retail areas (“Ipswich Tolly Cobbold brewery: New homes plans go on show“, BBC News January 21 2016).
