St Anns Cider Works, Chepstow (General)

The (BNA) Chepstow Weekly Advertiser - Saturday 23 August 1902 – contained an announcement of the pending sale of the St, Ann’s Cider, Beer and Mineral Water Stores. This is clearly for the benefit of creditors. It describes it as having a long frontage on St. Ann’s street and adjoining Lower Church Street. It had two drive-in entrances including a covered one from Lower Church Street. There is a quite detailed description of the buildings and facilities on the site. A cottage in St. Ann’s street was to be sold as well.

It was to be sold by Mr A.E. KINGSFORD who I gather was an Auctioneer as well as a former partner in the business. The partnership was dissolved in 1899.

Unfortunately, I can’t reproduce the whole announcement as the BNA site copy-and-paste facility is not co-operating.

Bearing in mind the description of the location I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the site of the Stores.,-2.6699394,3a,75y,252.26h,84.78t/data=!3m6!1e...

The present building shown has a date of 1938 on the gable and FIRE STATION over the Church Street entrance. At the time of Google’s visit it seems to have been a gym. Perhaps 1938 was the date of conversion to a Fire Station and part of the original buildings remain.
