Wilkins Brewery Quarry

Also known as Hermit’s Cave, the cliff face below the St Mary Tory church on the northern side of Bradford on Avon was quarried extensively in the past. From Well Path, a few window-like openings of the underground workings can be seen on the hillside.

Stone extraction from the quarry had finished prior to about 1860. By 1860, Alexander Wilkins had bought the quarry and built a brewery on the site, with a large malthouse against the quarry face. The brewery closed in 1914 and saw several subsequent different uses, including a Royal Enfield motorcycle factory. The malthouse was converted into flats in 1991.
