Brewing to start again at historical Mansfield Brewery site

(See: Prior's Well Brewery (Mansfield)) A piece in the Mansfield Chronicle and Advertiser tells us that brewing is set to take place at the old 1905 brewery building in Littleworth. A planning application has been submitted for a microbrewery, bar and cafe area by Prior's Well Brewery of Mansfield. The café of the old Making it Centre which vacated the premises in 2015 would continue but to the left of the main entrance behind a folding glass screen would be the main brewing area. In front of the doors would be a bar area. The brewery vessels will be visible behind a glass screen. The aim is to operate a café, serving local businesses and as a party venue for private hire. They also plan to offer brewery tours/talks and hold ‘Brewing Experience Days’ where people can actually come on an actual brew day and take part in the brewing operation. The new owners have access to Edwin Deakin's photo album and plan to adorn the walls and other areas with brewing memorabilia, and as many photographs as possible to pay homage to the former occupants. They may even use the original well on site. The only alteration to the fabric of the building would be a hole approximately 2.5 metres above floor level to house the 100mm stainless steel vent from the brewing vessels. Note the building has a coronet.
