History

The hostel building was originally built as a barrel warehouse for the adjoining Cirencester Brewery that closed in the 1930s. When the Brewery closed the building was used to build WW2 aircraft parts before becoming a town council store, it was even a theatre in the 1980s. In 1990 it became a part of New Brewery Arts, bringing the three remaining brewery buildings together as a creative hub in the town. Today New Brewery Arts offers classes and workshops in a range of contemporary and heritage crafts, and is home to a gallery as well as craft makers including glass-blowers, a potter and a stone carver.

Cirencester was the second largest town in Roman Britain, and this can be seen in the town’s amphitheatre and in the collection of the Corinium Museum. Cirencester is a thriving market town in the very heart of the Cotswolds, on the edge of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Cirencester also boasts one of the tallest hedges in the country, the 300-year-old yew hedge surrounding the Bathurst Estate is over 40 ft tall. It takes around 80 man-hours for a team of two to give the hedge its annual short, back and sides.
