Plough, 12 Crown street, Soho WC2

Soho index

The Old Plough by the 1869 directory. It is no longer listed at this address by 1882, although the address still exists.  I am not sure how much of the following is made up by breweries, but here goes:
This site at 111 Charing Cross Road was for many years occupied by the Plough inn, which had a large yard surrounded by a gallery with bedrooms above and stables below. By the 1870's the buildings were ruinous, and in 18756 Crosse and Blackwell erected new stables here to the designs of R. L. Roumieu in a severe but powerful Italian Romanesque manner. The entrance was through an archway from Crown Street, and the central covered yard was surrounded on the ground floor by accommodation for eighteen vans and four horses. A ramp led to the first floor, where there were stalls for thirty-five horses, a loose-box and living quarters for the stablemen. The Builder commented that 'The great value which is now attached to land makes it necessary to economise space in every way, particularly surface, and the London stables are following the example set by the London houses of shooting up vertically, instead of spreading horizontally'. The height from floor to roof ridge was, however, only forty feet. (fn. 65)
In the early 1920's Crosse and Blackwell removed from all their premises in Charing Cross Road, and in 19279 the existing block of shops, showrooms and offices was erected to the designs of F. Taperell and H. Haase. (fn. 66) *
