Address: Brewers Print Building, Peter Street, Chorley
The building was originally a stable block located directly behind the "Picture Palace", recorded on the 1911 Census Summary books below. Other than these two buildings there were few other buildings on Peter Street around the turn of the 20th century save for short row of houses opposite, which were eventually knocked down and replaced by St Mary's car park.
The only other property shown in 1911 on Peter Street was a harness room, presumably attached to the stable block. This was not a residence but in 1911 the occupant, a James Ralphs who worked as a "Cattle Drover" was recorded there as a homeless person.
In the early part of the 20th century the building was used for a number of purposes and in 1936 it appears that it had been split into separate workshop/units occupied by a wide variety of businesses.
Following on from that and prior to becoming a restaurant in the 1990s the premises were the home of the aptly named, J Brewer & Son Printers.
