In 1821 there were three large breweries in Bury St. Edmunds, by the standards of the time. These were breweries which made beer to sell, not only to the public, but to other public houses and inns for re-sale. One such firm was Henry Braddock’s Southgate Brewery, which had their own maltings adjacent to the brewery – a defining feature of the setting today.
From the rear elevation of Alicia Court a bell tower can be viewed in the distance at was once a school and famously the girls school as referred to in Charles Dicken’s ‘Pickwick Papers’ (1836).
