Tetbury Brewery, Hampton Street.
The Brewery was founded in 1800 by John Cook in a former woollen warehouse, over the next 113 years it remained in the hands of members of the family who formed various co partnerships. This family also had associations with a number of other Breweries in the UK, the most notable of which being Cook's Brewery, Tetbury Street, Birkenhead. Census returns have revealed that members of the Cook family had a tendency to relocate to the North West. Returning to the Gloucestershire concern, the Greyhound Inn, Hampton Street, located literally the other side of the street served as Tetbury Brewery's tap house. Sadly in 1913 Nathaniel and Walter Cook, who were both in their 60's not married, placed the Brewery along with it's entire stock of tied houses on the market. As of September 1st 1913 Tetbury Brewery and it's pubs became the property of Stroud Brewery Company Limited of Stroud Gloucestershire brewing at Tetbury Brewery ceased. The building remained intact until the engine house and chimney were deemed unsafe and subsequently demolished during the early 1980's. The extensive buildings that remain are listed, with it's interior turned into luxury apartments.
