Outbuilding about 30 metres west of Higher Southtown Farm, Southtown Lane, West Pennard - Mendip

Early C17 timber-framed brewhouse later utilised as a cottage, now part calf shed/hay store. In poor condition due to lack of maintenance and beneficial use for many years. Emergency clearance and stabilisation works to the building have been undertaken by Mendip District Council. Discussions underway with Historic England regarding the building's full repair.
