Brewery Street in Keighley

A Stones throw away from our premises is ‘Brewery Street’ just off Dalton Lane. A member of the Keighley Local History Group posted this in reply to my asking:

The Cattle family were brewers in Pocklington and commenced a complimentary business in Keighley in the Old Brewery at Cook Lane during 1869. They subsequently built the premises & Atley House in Dalton Lane opening in Spring 1873. The adjoining street being named Brewery Street. The family opened a third brewery at Seacombe some time later. Brewing ceasing at Keighley during 1903. Their best known pub in Keighley was the Hope & Anchior Halifax Road sold to the existing tenant when the brewery closed.

Wouldn’t it be good to find some old recipes!
