Newcastle, Low Friar Street, Saddlers' Wells Brewery
Brewing and Malting Site
Henry Dunn brewed here from 1859 until 1878. The brewery was at the rear of the dispensary (HER 7694). Around 1840 the dispensary had become a place of entertainment called Saddlers' Wells. Subsequent alterations created a public house and brewery. It lost its licence in 1892, when it was able to produce around 18 gallons at each brewing.
