A FORMER brewery with a rich history in Nailsworth has been transformed.

The beautiful Cotswold stone buildings where the town’s beer was once brewed and delivered to pubs all over the area, have been restored and turned into stylish apartments. 

The former Maltings brewery - which is situated in Tetbury Lane, Nailsworth - is a Grade II listed property but has been derelict for many years.

However, recently it has been buzzing with local tradesmen and crafts people working to bring the site back to life as 13 apartments.

This collection of one and two bedroom apartments range from 688sq ft to 1100 sq ft.

Two of the top floor properties have a small terrace at the rear, which overlook fields, and many of them take in a view across the valley or over fields. 

All of the units have a parking space and several of the apartments also have a dedicated secure storage area.

The Nailsworth site was originally the home of a bacon cellar building, constructed by Isaac Hillier.

Mr Hillier went onto sell the property to Joseph Clissold in 1852 and the cellar was converted into a malthouse in April 1856. 

The company supplied 71 local public houses, many now closed, but some still survive today, including The Britannia in Nailsworth and The Victoria in Stroud.

The Nailsworth property was bought by C.E Property Development of Tetbury last year, who began restoring them into new apartments.

A spokesperson for Peter Joy, the estate agency selling the property, said: "The buildings became Grade II listed in 2006, but sadly fell into disrepair and many of the historical features were lost. 

"Over the course of the last two years, a meticulous restoration project has been underway to create an exclusive complex of very individual new homes, brimming with original historical features. 

"A striking four storey new-build house is also being built on the site and the beautiful old kiln has been completely renovated to create a truly  unique showcase home.

"So now Nailsworth townsfolk can raise a glass to a new dawn in the history of this important local site."
