Brewery Arts Centre
Highgate, Kendal, Cumbria LA9 4HE

Highgate's first Brewery was licensed in 1758 on or near the site of the town house of the Wilsons of Dallam Tower. Its first owner was John Whitwell, whose family lived nearby at 122 Highgate for many years. The business prospered, was taken over byWilliam Mark, and in 1858, a new brewery was built in the gardens of the old Wilson house. Whitwell, Mark and Co became a private limited company in 1883 and remained as such until a take-over by Vaux Breweries of Sunderland in the late 1940s. The company's boom time was the 1930s, supplying 30 pubs across Westmorland with their famousAuld Kendal. The last brew was produced between 13 and 16 September 1968.
