A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Dec 1820 states :
To be sold by auction, the capital and substantial built Haverhill Brewery, replete with every convenience for carrying on extensive and lucrative trade, spacious stabling, store houses, and granaries; an excellent brick and sash fronted family residence, and offices, all contiguous; four cottages for workmen, with gardens; together with well established Inns and public houses in the counties of Suffolk and Essex; all situate at easy distance from the brewery. Also a substantial wind corn mill, 2 extensive newly erected malting, situate at Haverhill and Great Wratting, distant only 3 miles. The property affords a most desirable opportunity for speculation, to a decided advantage; the brewery being now in full trade, and has for a series of years been carried on with increasing success; the malting are spacious and contain ample stowage for an immense quantity of grain.
