The Brewery Tap

The Brewery Tap was a small pub on White Street, Market Lavington.  It closed its doors to the drinkers – beer brewed on the premises – in the mid 1920s. It survives as a building although it is not recognisably the same, for ‘the old tap’ was a single storey building and it was converted into two dwellings with an extra floor added. Tom Gye remembers the alterations being done and thinks it was about 1924.

The old building was recorded in photos and we have seen some before. You could click here to see one of them.

Today we are looking at a relic from the pub – in the form of the window which was in the pub door when it closed.

We believe this window, which has the pub name sand blasted in it, dates from about 1900. How amazing that it has survived.
