Another piece of architectural heritage lost.
Shame that the facade facing the river Avon could not be saved. :-(
This was the old brewery at one time the largest in Bristol I believe. Connections to the Yeamans and the Saunders family. I'm not sure when this unique structure was built, it seems like it's a fairly old one and what a shame to see that is has been lost to the ravages of "redevelopment" rather than just refurbished and saved. Not all redevelopment is good, especially when you lose your architectural heritage. That's a bad thing.
Sad they couldn't save the old brewery, seems like it was one the last largest brick buildings from the early history of Bristol. What a loss. :-(
I've been extensively researching the Yeamans family in Bristol and knew about this brewery. I was a little flabbergasted when looking at Bristol recently on Google Earth with all the new building going on. But was saddened to see the old building that seemed like a big feature shaping the bend of the Avon River. I thought the brewery would be refurbished into offices rather than just destroyed and losing another piece of Bristol's building history to "improved" development. What a shame. Shame on the Bristol City Council.
